Gardner Minshew II Impressing During Virtual Program

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II has impressed new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden with his work during the virtual offseason program. Gruden likes how Minshew has taken charge and seems to have a good grasp of the offense. "He has shown a skill set where he can sit in a pocket, step up, make things happen outside the pocket. He's accurate, he's tough and obviously he's a great leader, so he's got the intangibles you want in a quarterback," Gruden said. The sixth-round pick went 6-6 as a starter in his rookie season and had the highest passer rating and fewest interceptions among rookie QBs in 2019. The 24-year-old took the league by storm last year out of nowhere and has the ability to make things happen outside the pocket and with his legs, as he rushed for 344 yards in 2019. All things considered, though, Minshew is a low-end QB2 that will likely see more inconsistency in his second season.

Jay Gruden Trying To Mesh With Gardner Minshew II

Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said that it's his job "to make it mesh" with quarterback Gardner Minshew II. "I love Gardner's competitive spirit. Now it's just a matter of him getting some general knowledge of our offense and me figuring out what he likes, what he doesn't like, what makes him tick and go from there," Gruden said. In Gruden's last season as an offensive coordinator with Cincinnati in 2013, Andy Dalton had a career-high 33 touchdowns and career-high 4,293 yards. Minshew is set to be the team's starter heading into 2020, even if they sign a veteran QB before the season. The sixth-round pick a year ago showed toughness and mobility outside the pocket, but the ceiling isn't high and he remains in a run-first offense. Draft him as a midrange QB2, at best.

Jaguars Could Bring In Veteran Behind Gardner Minshew II

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone reiterated that second-year quarterback Gardner Minshew II is his starting quarterback on Friday, though he did say that there are "some veterans out there that [Jacksonville] might look at to bring in" as potential backups for Minshew. Rumors have circulated that Andy Dalton could be that veteran passer, but it does seem like the Jaguars intend to go into 2020 with Minshew as their guy at quarterback. After an uneven rookie campaign that saw Minshew start 12 games and throw for 3271 yards, 21 touchdowns, and six interceptions -- but that also saw him briefly lose his starting role to Nick Foles -- Minshew should be considered a mid-to-low end fantasy QB2 at this time.
