The Jaguars have a high-profile rookie quarterback who has managed, along with the rest of the team, to keep a low profile. Blake Bortles will continue to have a low profile on the depth chart; the team’s first official list of players and positions puts him at No. 2, behind Chad Henne.
But another rookie taken early in the process has landed in the starting lineup, for now. It’s second-round receiver Marqise Lee. A star in 2012 who slid at USC in 2013, Lee has done enough so far this year to earn the spot across from Cecil Shorts III.
On defense, a couple of former Seahawks have rocketed to the top at defensive end in their first year with the team. Free-agent arrivals Red Bryant and Chris Clemons are listed as the starters.
Another newcomer, Toby Gerhart, is the starter at running back, ahead of Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson.
