The Jacksonville Jaguars have been steadfastly clear with their intentions to shelter Blake Bortles to start the 2014 season.
While the rookie quarterback agrees with the decision to sit and learn behind Chad Henne, Bortles told NFL Media's Bryan Fischer at the Nike Elite 11 camp in Beaverton, Oregon, on Monday that he'd be ready if called upon early.
"I think you have to have the mindset that you have to go out and compete every day," Bortles said. "You want to be the guy. In my situation, whenever my number is called I want to be ready to go and execute the offense just like Chad would. That's my goal, to make sure I'm prepared and ready and continuing to get better."
Bortles just may get his chance at some point this season, although Henne seems like he has some tools to work with on offense. Either way, you'll find the Jacksonville QBs near the bottom of our list.
