2014 NFL Draft Picks By Team: Jaguars
At the beginning of the 2013 season, Bortles was a little known redshirt senior coming off a pretty good 2012 season in which he led the Knights to a 10-4 record. Now, he's a high-rising star who could challenge Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater as the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Bortles has the ideal height and build for NFL QBs. Can evade out of the pocket and pick up tough yards. Surprisingly good scrambler a la Andrew Luck. Sees the field really well and flows right through his progressions. Very good arm strength, not quite elite. Accuracy comes and goes, but that could be cleaned up with technique improvements. Takes chances with the football. Improved every year he was at UCF. Outdueled Bridgewater to lead UCF to huge win that really put them on the map in 2013.
Very confident in his decision-making. Displays good leadership. Plays under control emotionally. Hangs in the pocket to deliver the football when under duress.
Bortles projects as a Top 10 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Not an entirely polished prospect, so it's unlikely he blows up as a rookie. Worth a late-round flier if he is the presumed starter and you have an elite starting QB. La... [Read More
In the long line of talented USC wide receivers, Lee is on deck to show the NFL what he can do. The junior wideout was underwhelming in what was supposed to be his walk off year. His numbers bloomed as a sophomore (118 receptions for 1,721 yards and 14 TD) and regressed in 2013 (73-1,143-11). He did miss a few games though and luckily for him, he's put enough on tape to earn the trust and interest from many NFL scouts.
Average height, could afford to add muscle throughout his body. Very good ball skills and consistently catches the ball with his hands, not his body. Really able to snap his hands and snatch the ball at the moment of impact. Will need to get stronger to challenge corners vertically or in traffic. Strength will also be an issue against press man coverage.
Smooth route runner. Body control looks very good getting in and out of his breaks. Seems to lose no speed when making cuts. Average leaper. Good, but not great acceleration and vertical top-end speed. Will need work as a blocker, although he plays hard and looks willing to scrap and block. Tough upbringing. Overcame a lot in his youth.
Lee projects as a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Robinson was Penn State's biggest playmaker over the last two years. A big receiver with surprising athleticism, he could hear his name called on the first day of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Ideal height and length. Very fluid route-runner with good body control. Shields defenders away to secure the catch. Looks for more yardage after catch. Good balance and above-average short-area quickness with the ball in his hands. Presents the quarterback with a big target. Works his way back to the football in soft spots in zone. Average vertical speed. Finds more separation from crisp routes and puts good corners/bends throughout the tree. Needs to sell some routes better and will telegraph his movements on occasion.
Excellent wingspan and catching radius. Really aggressive when going up for the ball. No problems with contact and can work the middle of the field. Can regularly make the catch in tight windows. Average hands. Allows the ball into his body way too often. Could lose some forward momentum at the combine due to average straight-line speed.
Robinson projects as a second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Overdrafted at the moment. Currently a Top 6 or 7 pick i... [Read More
