Thanks to higher-profile first-round quarterbacks and the low profile that comes from six years and counting of no playoff berths, the Jaguars have been able to avoid plenty of the attention that otherwise would come from having the third overall pick in the draft supposedly parked behind a career journeyman.
That could soon be ending. Recent rave reviews of rookie QB Blake Bortles combined with, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, a strong showing in Saturday night’s intrasquad scrimmage could make Bortles’ elevation to starter a Week 1 inevitability.
Teams usually don't invest that must in a QB only to have him sit on the bench. The Jags WRs are also young so the move would make some sense. However the fear of throwing him out there too early is always one to consider with rookie QBs. Either way, Bortles or Chad Henne will likely need some time to establish fantasy value this season.
