The Jaguars select UCF QB Blake Bortles with the third overall pick

With the third pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected UCF quarterback Blake Bortles.

It was a bit of a surprise pick as both Khalil Mack and Sammy Watkins were on the board, but the Jags finally get a franchise quarterback.

Bortles has the prototypical size (6-5, 235), arm strength and mobility that teams covet. The American Athletic Conference's Offensive Player of the Year, Bortles threw for 3,581 yards, 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions while rushing for 272 yards and six touchdowns last year.

It's possible that Bortles begins the season sitting behind Chad Henne. Another concern for Bortles' 2014 fantasy perspective is that Justin Blackmon, who is currently suspended, may not play this season.
