Jaguars Looking at Quarterbacks

In their seemingly never ending search for collegiate talent, the Jaguars have found themselves in the Big East looking at some quarterbacks. Find out which game the scouts are attending and who they are looking at.

JagNation has confirmed the attendance of Jaguars scouts at Saturday's West Virginia-Louisville game. Among the intriguing prospects that are playing is WVU quarterback Pat White. At just 6'0" (listed height), 192 lbs. Pat White looks like anything but the prototypical NFL quarterback. Still his athleticism is intriguing for many teams and the Jaguars may look to move him to wide receiver, a la the team's current leading receiver, Matt Jones. White has been clocked in the 4.3's (40-yard dash) and he has great vision for his size. Although White throws the underneath pass well, it is far from likely that any NFL team will give him much of a chance at quarterback aside from emergency situations. Still, White is projected as a late first, early second-day prospect at this time.

Another prospect who could fill a certain need for the Jags is WVU junior left guard Greg Isdaner. Isdaner is a three-year starter for the Mountaineers who excels in run blocking, as you would expect with their spread offense. Isdaner measures in at 6'4", 306 lbs. and runs a 40 in just over five seconds. He was named on the Lomardi and Outland Trophy watch lists. Isdaner is currently projected as a second to third-round draft pick.

One other defensive prospect from WVU is strong safety Quinton Andrews. The junior measures in at 5'11", 208 lbs. and runs a 4.46 40-yard dash. Entering Saturday's action, Andrews had racked up 59 tackles, three TFL, and five passes defensed. Andrews is currently projected as an early second-day pick.

Some other prospects from WVU are senior outside linebacker Morty Ivy, senior outside linebacker John Holmes, senior center Mike Dent, and senior K/P Pat McAfee.

Although Louisville is having a down year, they still have a few prospects that NFL scouts are looking including redshirt senior quarterback Hunter Cantwell. Cantwell looks the part of a prototypical passer, as he stands 6'4" tall and weighs 236 lbs. A former walk-on, Cantwell had to wait his turn behind Brian Brohm before finally getting his shot this year. Cantwell has good size and even better arm strength, and he can make all the throws. He's a tough kid, but he's inexperienced. On the season, Cantwell has completed just 57.4% of his throws for 1947 yards, and has 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Cantwell is currently projected as a late first, early second-day pick.

Cantwell has to take the snaps from someone, and that someone is Louisville senior center Eric Wood. Wood has good size at 6'4", 308 lbs., and surprising athleticism. Wood is a smart player, a good worker, and is very good in pass protection. Wood is currently projected as an early second-day pick, and with the Jaguars need for some additional young depth in the middle of their line, Wood could be an excellent choice.

Some other prospects from Louisville are senior defensive tackle Earl Heyman, senior cornerback Woodny Turenne, and senior fullback Brock Bolen.
