Jaguars vs. Raiders 2012: 'It's a race for the No. 1 pick' after Jacksonville loss

Adam Stites of Big Cat Country believes that the Jacksonville Jaguars will be in contention for the No. 1 overall draft pick next year.

Adam Stites of Big Cat Country already wrote about how Chad Henne cost the Jacksonville Jaguars their game against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Now he puts it into words in a Youtube video for SB Nation. In that video, Stites says now that 'it's a race for the No. 1 pick' after this loss:

Stites also thinks that if the Jaguars do wind up with the No. 1 overall draft pick, that quarterback Blaine Gabbert and general manager Gene Smith's time in Jacksonville could be done. He does admit that Gabbert was not to blame in this, having completed 8-of-12 passes for 110 yards before getting injured in the first half.

He also believes this shows why the Jaguars have been sticking with Gabbert all this time, because he gave the Jaguars a better chance to win than Henne did when he was in the game. The Jaguars next play the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field next Sunday with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. and television coverage on CBS.
