Allen Robinson: Jaguars Trade Up, Take WR

The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled another big surprise in the 2014 NFL Draft, by trading back up into the 2nd round and selecting Allen Robinson. Robinson, a wide receiver from Penn State, became the second wideout taken by the Jaguars in the draft.

The Jaguars traded the 70th and 150th overall picks to the San Fransisco 49ers to select Robinson. Essentially, this means the Jags gave up a 4th round pick and used their 3rd rounder on Robinson. Dave Caldwell made clear he wanted to address the offense in this draft, and he’s not being shy about it. Caldwell earlier on had selected Marqise Lee, a wide receiver from USC. With the additions of both Robinson and Lee, the Jaguars have given their newly selected quarterback Blake Bortles two new weapons on offense. After the trade was announced, it was widely speculated the Jags were moving up for center Marcus Martin from USC, but they chose the Penn State product instead.

As a result of the trade, the Jaguars are not currently scheduled to pick again tonight. Their next pick would be in tomorrow’s 4th round, at 105 overall.
