In many other years it would be safe to say that the Jaguars will easily find a replacement for both Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne. This year it will not be.
The Jaguars have seen enough from Gabbert to prove that he is not a starter in the NFL. The difference with many other tenth overall selections, is that Gabbert's salary is not ridiculous for a back up in the NFL, meaning he should stick around as a backup and possibly get some time to grow. He will only be 24 next season.
Henne doesn't display, and has yet to prove any type of true consistency, but he has shown enough to start next year.
Between developing chemistry with his receivers and spending time with the staff, Henne doesn't have much competition for next season.
With the possibility that the Jaguars snag a quarterback in the draft, it will not be in the first round. The list of quarterback prospects this season do not compare at all to a season ago.
Free agency will not host any names that will encourage the Jags to make a run for them. Alex Smith and Michael Vick are the two likeliest to give hope to fans of Jacksonville, but both will get offers from bigger market, more desperate teams at the position that will look more suitable for two older players.
Tim Tebow cannot be ruled out because of his celebrity status to be brought into Jacksonville, but he will not be the first or second string in Jacksonville next season at quarterback, that is a guarantee.
The offensive line will be the Jaguars biggest area of attack this offseason, and could mean for a much better offense in 2013. Henne has proven that he is a capable starter when he gets enough time to make a good decision.
