Outlook

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.
