2014 NFL Draft First Round Grades: Jacksonville Jaguars

3rd Overall Pick: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

Everyone and their mother had either Mack or Watkins being taken here, but Jacksonville found their new starting quarterback instead. There's no doubt this is a quarterback driven league, and finding a franchise signal caller is the most important thing you can do. However, most people agree no QB in this class is a sure thing. I'm glad they went Bortles over Johnny Football here, but it was still a reach. It's hard to penalize them too much for trying to find a desperately needed new face for their franchise, but they probably could have found a comparable prospect with their second round selection (or trading up to late first round).
