2014 NFL Draft: Jaguars move up to select Robinson

Posted May 9, 2014

Jaguars select Penn State WR Allen Robinson with second-round selection in 2014 NFL Draft, No. 61 overall.


JACKSONVILLE – Another Round 2 selection, another wide receiver.

Shortly after selecting a wide receiver with their first selection of the second round, the Jaguars on Friday night made another move to improve the position, selecting wide receiver Allen Robinson of Penn State with the 61st selection of the second round.

The Jaguars traded their third-round selection – the No. 70 selection overall – and a fifth-round selection (No. 150) to the San Francisco 49ers for the No. 61 selection. That was the second of three fifth-round selections the team had entering the draft.

Robinson caught 97 passes for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns last season.

The Jaguars earlier in the evening had selected Southern California wide receiver Marquise Lee with the No. 39 overall selection. They entered the night with that selection.

The Jaguars selected Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall selection in the draft on Thursday night. They hold the No. 70 selection – the sixth selection of the third round – later on Friday night.
