2014 NFL Draft: Blake Bortles to visit Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday


As the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, it’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to figure out what they’re ultimately going to do with that third overall pick that they hold, and many believe they will use it on one of the highly touted quarterbacks coming out.

Already, the team has visits scheduled this week with a slew of them, including Johnny Manziel and Derek Carr, and now you can add Blake Bortles to the list as Ed Werder is reporting that he will have his time with the team on Thursday.


Despite the team bringing back Chad Henne this offseason, they will still be looking toward a signal caller to come in and compete for the starting job as head coach Gus Bradley continues to try and revitalize the franchise.

They’re going to take a long look at all of the pieces this week, but, in the end, Bortles could be the best fit for what Bradley likes to do with his offensive scheme.
