JACKSONVILLE – On day 2, the Jaguars went wide receiver.
And they did so quickly, with the Jaguars using the seventh selection of the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft – the No. 39 selection overall – on University of Southern California wide receiver Marqise Lee.
Lee was widely considered a possible first-round selection, slipping out of the first round in what many considered a very deep draft at the position.
Lee (6-feet-0, 192 pounds) ran a 4.52-second 40-yard dash and was productive throughout his collegiate career, winning the Biletnikoff Award in 2012. He also was a consensus All-America selection that season.
Lee declared for the draft following his junior season.
The Houston Texas took guard Xavier Su’a-Filo of UCLA with the first selection of the second round. That was the 33rd selection overall, with the Dallas Cowboys selecting Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence No. 34, the Cleveland Browns selecting Nevada offensive tackle Joel Bitonio No. 35, the Oakland Raiders selecting Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr No. 36, the Atlanta Falcons selecting Minnesota defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman No. 37 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selecting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins from Washington No. 38.
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.
