Jacksonville Jaguars owners Shahid Khan says that the team will be drafting at least one quarterback later this year.

Shahid Khan has confirmed that the Jacksonville Jaguars will select at least one quarterback in this season's Draft.

The AFC South side made Blaine Gabbert their starter for the 2013 season, but a pre-season injury saw Chad Henne take the majority of the snaps for the Jags, finishing the season with 3,241 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

The team's owner told the Florida Times-Union: "I think there's no mystery that we're going to be taking a quarterback and maybe two. We have to get better at that [position].

"It's one of the maxims in modern football, the quarterback is key. You will get no debate on that. It's 53 people on a team, but that one person really, really makes a difference."

The Jaguars are due to have the third pick in May's Draft, but have not ruled out trading the pick to another team.
