The Jaguars are looking to give their franchise a makeover and with doing so they boldly took Blake Bortles as the 3rd overall pick in the 2014 draft. The pick was a bit of a surprise pick across the league but there was something there that the Jaguars believed in Bortles and knew he was their guy and stayed the course and selected him. This bodes well for his future and the pressure in Jacksonville is probably a lot less than what it might of been in some other markets for Bortles. He does not have to be forced into action immediately and can be brought into the system slowly and learn side by side from the likes of Chad Henne. Bortles has a lot of physical tools to like as he has the prototypical size for an NFL quarterback measuring in at 6'5" and 232 lbs. He also handles pressure in the pocket rather well and can stand in the pocket and deliver a pass without panic, which is something the Jaguars have not had too much experience with in the past. The Jaguars drafted a nice young WR duo to bring along with Bortles in Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson and all three should be able to grow and gain some chemistry together for years to come.

Rams | Blake Bortles joins Rams (Mon Mar 18, 07:56 PM) - Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Our View: The Rams needed a backup quarterback to Jared Goff since Sean Mannion was a free agent. This is an interesting destination for Bortles, a first-round disappointment of the Jaguars. If he can't make plays with head coach Sean McVay then he's unlikely to make plays anywhere.

Rams | Blake Bortles to visit Rams (Fri Mar 15, 10:10 PM) - Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) will visit the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18, according to a team source.

Our View: The Rams are looking for backup help behind Jared Goff. Last year's top reserve, Sean Mannion, is a free agent and they only have Brandon Allen on the roster behind Goff at this time. Bortles had mostly bad times with the Jaguars but he has flashed a bit here and there. His best spot is as a backup.

Our View: Jacksonville cleared up plenty of cap space for Nick Foles on Friday, releasing several players but not Bortles...yet. Cutting Bortles would create another $4.5 million in salary cap space.
