Move over Chad Henne, there's going to be a new starting quarterback in Jacksonville.

Well that is certainly what it looks like with the amount of play callers the Jaguars are bringing in for a visit before the draft.

And the Jags will have rival top picks in as well with Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles all set to visit the facilities in Florida.

And it seems like the Jaguars may be favouring Blake Bortles more than his contemporary Manziel. 

Johnny Football is visiting the Jags on Wednesday along with Bridgewater, Fresno State's Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo of Eastern Illinois.

But on Thursday, Bortles will be the only the only QB in attendance, and it looks like the Jags won't him in by himself to go into more depth with.

The Jags hold the number three pick in this years draft and seemed destined to draft a new starting QB.

Blaine Gabbert was shipped off to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth round draft pick and it is quite clear the previously mentioned Henne will not be the long term future of the position either.

Khalil Mack, Manziel and Bridgewater are the three players that have been linked with the Jags most in Mock Drafts, but if Bortles name is still on the board when it is their time to pick, it won't be a surprise if head coach Gus Bradley makes the former Central Florida man his new number one.
