2014 NFL Draft grades: Jaguars get high marks from most

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Nobody cares about NFL Draft grades but at the same time everyone cares! Here are the grades for the Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 class.

The 2014 NFL Draft has finally come to conclusion and the Jacksonville Jaguars walk away with nine new drafted players after entering the draft will 11 total picks. General manager Dave Caldwell shocked nearly everyone with his selection of UCF quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick, but continued to load up on offensive talent as the draft continued.

Caldwell's shocker and subsequent offensive minded picks seemed to please most draft experts, as the Jaguars walked away with high marks from most draft analysts.

Grades:

Matthew Fairburn, SB Nation: A-
Mel Kiper, ESPN: A
Pete Prisco, CBS: A
Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated: A-
Alessandro Miglio, Bleacher Report: A
Yahoo!: A-

While day-after NFL Draft grades are quite meaningless, I can't remember the last time a Jaguars draft was so universally applauded. I personally think the Jaguars have a very good draft with 1-2 questionable picks, but Dave Caldwell clearly had a plan entering the draft and executed it. Now he just has to hope that Blake Bortles is the right guy.
