Jaguars Depth Chart Loser: Whimper, Henne Subpar Against Saints

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a couple of players who had a chance to impress Mike Mularkey in their preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 17, but for one reason or another were unable to step up to the occasion.

Alfie Crow at Big Cat Country noted a few players who were unable to improve their spot on the Jags depth chart. Offensive tackle Guy Whimper had a chance to make a case for a starting position after he was pushed into the starting lineup with Eugene Monroe's injury, but he made some major mistakes in the Jags' passing game,

Guy Whimper, Offensive Tackle: It's not much of a surprise to anyone that Whimper struggled in pass protection when thrust back into the starting lineup. The Jaguars seem to like him as a swing backup offensive tackle, but his struggles in pass protection make him a real liability on the offensive line.

Chad Henne looks set as Blaine Gabbert's backup at quarterback this season, but his play has been underwhelming so far this training camp and that continued against New Orleans,

Chad Henne, Quarterback: According to the coaching staff, Henne will continue to be the backup quarterback despite his poor play, which should be no surprise since the team paid him a $3 million signing bonus. Henne continues to struggle though, and while he is playing with backups he's also playing against backups.
