Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said the team met with 10 quarterbacks Friday night at the NFL Scouting Combine, including Central Florida’s Blake Bortles, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater and Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel. Teams are allowed to spend 15 minutes with each prospect. “They were all solid; they did a nice job,” Caldwell said of Big Three. LSU’s Zach Mettenberger, who could be an option for the Jaguars in the second round, said he met with the Jaguars. “Coach [Gus] Bradley made quite an impression,” he said. Jaguars personnel in the meetings included Caldwell, Bradley, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and, for the first time since he bought the team, owner Shad Khan is at the Combine and attended the sessions. “Everyone was in there,” Bridgewater said. “It was a great meeting, a lot of energy, a lot of smiles and laughs. I was just able to be myself. That’s the biggest thing, just proving to the coaches who I am as a person.” Bridgewater said there is “no doubt” he should be drafted ahead of Bortles and Manziel. “I feel that I’m the best quarterback in this draft,” he said. “I’m just confident in myself and my capability to be able to play this position.” Fisch said the short meeting window prevented the Jaguars from talking strategy with the quarterbacks — that will happen next month before or after their Pro Day workouts and if they bring the player to Jacksonville for a visit.
