The Jacksonville Jaguars in desperate need for a franchise QB selected Blake Bortles out of UCF with the 3rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. That same draft in the send draft with the #36 pick, the Oakland Raiders selected Derek Carr from Fresno State. On Sunday the Raiders and Jaguars will tangle and these two QBs will be on display.

So far the early voting shows that Derek Carr has been the better selection. However Bortles has shown some signs of potential. There’s no doubt that Carr is already excelling and proving to be more than just a solid starting QB. The question now is if the Jaguars made the right choice in selecting Bortles. 

Guy Haberman and John Middlekauff over at Vsporto, discuss whether or not the Jaguars are regretting this draft already.
