With the third pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Blake Bortles, Quarterback, from UCF. This was a bit of a surprise pick to say the least. This does fit in with what Caldwell has been saying for months about Henne starting and bringing along a rookie quarterback slowly.
After months of rumors and predictions, we finally know who the newest Jag is. After much debate about whether or not the Jaguars would try and trade down a couple of spots to acquire more picks, they stayed at number three and chose Blake Bortles. Bortles joins Luke Joeckel as 1st round picks under GM Dave Caldwell.
Here’s a highlight reel of Blake Bortles to get you excited -
Assuming the Jaguars do not trade back into the 1st round, they will not pick again tonight. The next Jags pick will be in tomorrow night’s second round at pick 39. Make sure you stay right here with Black and Teal throughout the 2014 NFL Draft for all your Jacksonville Jaguars coverage.
