“Or Cubby,” general manager Dave Caldwell said. Promoted to his first director’s job by Caldwell on May 28, Driggers sat in his EverBank Field office last month for what he said was his first-ever interview.

Driggers discussed his nickname (“Cub” is the middle name on his birth certificate, a play off his father’s nickname, “Bear”), high school playing career (guard and linebacker), first job with the Jaguars (a little of everything), the best college player he ever evaluated (Adrian Peterson) and the current culture (“you can’t help but be in love with football”).

Since joining the franchise in October 1994 as an intern, Driggers has been a salary cap administrator (four years), scouting assistant (one year), college scout (nine years) and pro scout (six years). He’s worked under four personnel chiefs and full-time head coaches apiece.
