Jaguars select Lee in 2nd round to fill WR need
ESPN 538+ SHARES
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell was first enamored with Marqise Lee during the receiver's freshman season at USC, but he knew he'd have to wait a while before he'd have a chance to draft him.
Caldwell failed in his bid to trade up to the top pick in the second round (33rd overall) so he had to wait out the Jaguars' turn at 39 before they could grab Lee to help improve one of the league's worst offenses.
The 6-foot, 192-pound Lee, who said his drop into the second round will serve as motivation, is ready to do his part.
Seattle was originally scheduled to pick at No. 40 before making a second draft trade, this time with Detroit.
Despite playing with a young quarterback, Richardson had a standout senior season with 83 catches for 1,343 yards and 10 touchdown catches.
