Blaine Gabbert Already Showing Improvement

The biggest question surrounding Jaguars fans this offseason is whether or not Blaine Gabbert can be the quarterback of the future for Jacksonville. While his rookie year was far from successful, its usually the second year where quarterbacks can be legitimately judged for what they can or cannot do.

New Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is already talking about how much Gabbert has improved during this offseason according to a post by ESPN's Paul Kuharsky while he was talking with Jacksonville offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski.

What we've tried to do is get him to slow his feet down just a little bit, take shorter steps and stand taller in the pocket. Those are some things we identified when we first looked at him, and he's improving on those things out there right now. You can see him carrying it into the actual plays we're running in team situations.

Footwork is something that a pocket quarterback like Gabbert can ill-afford to not improve going into the second year of his career.
