The Jacksonville Jaguars used their first round pick on quarterback Blake Bortles, and then turned around and used their second round pick on someone for him to throw to: Marqise Lee. Lee hails from USC, and should help instantly upgrade the offense. Lee has struggled with injuries and drops, but he has speed for days.
Let’s take a look at how Twitter reacted to the pick.
Marqise Lee could be the 2014 Keenan Allen

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell on WR Marqise Lee: “The guy’s a playmaker. When he gets the ball in his hands, he’s electric.”

Going to be doing in-depth breakdowns for each Jag pick and their fit when draft is over. Excited for Lee b/c I think he’s good for Fisch O
