Former Pro Bowl QB David Garrard has been named No. 23 on the Jaguars All-25, the club announced today. Jaguars All-25 is a collection of the top 25 non-active players in franchise history, as voted on by members of the local Jacksonville media.
Garrard, 6-2, 235, was selected by the Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft (108th overall) after playing at East Carolina University. The East Orange, N.J. native played in 87 games (76 starts) for the Jaguars from 2002-10 and ranks third in franchise history for passing yards (16,003), completions (1,406) and passing TDs (89). In 2007, Garrard was the only QB in the NFL to throw at least 15 TDs (18) and less than five INTs (3). He helped the Jaguars reach the postseason in 2005 and 2007 and earned Pro Bowl honors following the 2009 season after throwing for 3,957 yards and 15 TDs.
“David looked like the new era of quarterback when he came in 2002,” said Brian Sexton, Jaguars senior correspondent and an All-25 voting member. “He was powerful. He looked like a linebacker playing quarterback with a rocket of an arm. He was one of those guys whose physical abilities were superior.”
