RTC: Blake Bortles not far behind Teddy Bridgewater


SOUTHINGTON, Conn. -- Reading the coverage regarding the Jacksonville Jaguars ...

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal writes that Teddy Bridgewater has the highest floor of the 2014 rookie quarterbacks but Blake Bortles has a chance to surpass Bridgewater. "He looked like Cam Newton at times," Rosenthal writes. "He could improvise and throw well on the move. He performed well in the two-minute drill. A lot of the "tough-to-find" traits are there. The flash is there. Bortles has potential to make a huge leap in Year 2 by improving the basics and getting a little help from his teammates. His ceiling could still be higher than Bridgewater's, but he's far from a sure bet."

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling ranked the 2014 receivers on how they would be re-drafted based on one season of game film. Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns were in his "solid second fiddles" group.

Hays Carlyon and Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union give reasons why the Jaguars should draft each of the following six players with the No. 3 overall pick: Vic Beasley, Amari Cooper, Bud Dupree, Dante Fowler Jr., Todd Gurley and Leonard Williams.

The next part of the Jaguars' rebuild under general manger David Caldwell is finding a stud player on Thursday, O'Halloran writes.

The Jaguars' offensive line must meet the challenge and play significantly better than it has the past two seasons, writes T-U columnist Gene Frenette.
