18. Jacksonville Jaguars – Trading Up To Draft Quarterback Blaine Gabbert
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ disaster in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft was three-fold. For one, they sent the Washington Redskins a second round pick to move up just six spots, from #16 overall to #10 overall, which looks like an overpay in hindsight. Regardless, with that pick, they selected quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who turned out to be a spectacular bust for the Jaguars, as he simply wasn’t ready to play in the NFL.
And the worst part of all? The Jaguars took Gabbert over defensive end JJ Watt, who was selected just one pick later by their division rival, the Houston Texans.
