Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles will be featured on ESPN's "Hey Rookie, Welcome to the NFL" special on Tuesday evening, airing on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET.

The show generally features prominent rookies as they're adjusting to the NFL and going through the draft process. Last season's version of the show featured the likes of E.J. Manuel, Tyriann Mathieu and Shariff Floyd.

The last Jaguars rookie to be featured on the program was former No. 5 overall pick, Justin Blackmon, back in 2012. I never saw that version of the show, so I can't speak to what it was like watching Blackmon.

Bortles should be fun to watch on the show, as we've seen he already appears to be well versed in dealing with the media, but shows like this are generally catching the players in a more candid environment.
