The Jacksonville Jaguars held their second of two rookie camp practices on Saturday and fans were excited to see what No. 3 selection, Blake Bortles, would look like with weapons like Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. Really excited. The Jaguars announced an attendance of 6,214 fans on Saturday, a record for any practice in the franchise's history.

According to Tad Dickman, the public relations coordinator for the team, the previous record for a rookie camp practice was 2,378 and the record for a training camp practice was estimated at about 4,500. Jaguars fans nearly eclipsed the mark for a rookie camp practice on Friday afternoon with 2,054 fans in attendance, but crushed that mark on Saturday.

The two-day rookie minicamp features the nine players selected by the Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft, the 17 undrafted free agents signed shortly after the Draft and 27 players trying out for contracts. Bortles of the University of Central Florida was the first quarterback selected in the draft and is the obvious draw for fans.
