Chad Henne has said that rookie quarterbacks should not be made starters during their first season in the NFL.
The 28-year-old, who is expected to face competition for the starting role at the AFC South side from a rookie in 2014, told the Florida Times Union: "You go from the Senior Bowl to the Combine and then you really never take a couple months off. You need a break to get your mind at ease and get accustomed to being an NFL player.
"I had a pretty good pre-season [in 2008], but there was a lot to learn and I'm pretty thankful I sat out that first year, learning a lot from Chad, the film work, the prep and going through the whole process."
The Jaguars will have the third overall pick in this year's Draft, which takes place next month.
