Report: Johnny Manziel Among Five QBs Visiting Jaguars This Week


Johnny ManzielThe Jacksonville Jaguars are sorting through quarterbacks available in the 2014 NFL draft this week.

The Jaguars are scheduled to host Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Central Florida’s Blake Bortles, Fresno State’s Derek Carr, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater and Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo on pre-draft visits, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday, via a source. The Jaguars are only allowed to interview those players. Workouts aren’t permitted.

The Jaguars also are scheduled to meet with Buffalo outside linebacker Khalil Mack, a projected top-10 pick, this week.

The Jaguars hold the No. 3 overall pick in the draft. They pick seventh (No. 39 overall) in the second round.

Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater and Carr are projected as first-round picks, though there are reports that top quarterbacks could slide to the second round. Garoppolo is among a second tier of quarterback prospects projected to be drafted starting in the second round.

Veteran signal-caller Chad Henne currently is penciled in atop the Jaguars’ quarterback depth chart. That could change depending on whom the Jaguars select in the draft.
