Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson makes a catch during a drill at the NFL football scouting combine in Indianapolis, Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014.

The Jaguars’ first trade of this year’s draft – from No. 70 in the third round to No. 61 in the second round – allowed them to take Penn State receiver Allen Robinson.

Earlier tonight, the Jaguars drafted USC receiver Marqise Lee at No. 39.

The Jaguars traded Nos. 70 and 150 to San Francisco for the Robinson pick.

Robinson (6-2 1/2 and 209 pounds) ran 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine and his 42-inch vertical jump was first among all receivers.

The 150th pick was originally acquired in 2012 from Detroit for receiver Mike Thomas.

Robinson had 177 catches in his Penn State career, totalling 2,474 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Last year, Robinson's 119.3 yards per game was third in the nation and his total of 1,432 yards was sixth.

Robinson was projected as a top 40 pick earlier this off-season.

Just another sure sign the

Just another sure sign the Jaguars are complete idiots.

Allen Robinson is the pick they should have made to begin with.

Lee is damaged goods and a high risk relating to durability issues apart from being a raw track guy type pass catcher that cuts depth off routes leading to interceptions.

Three picks on just two guys, on top of the Ace Sanders and Denard Robinson picks last year.

And yes, the Jaguars took Denard Robinson to be a Preston Pearson type receiver, despite the fact that he had no proven position when drafted.

This does NOT bode well for Caldwell, who has yet to prove he is a competent NFL executive.

Five picks on wide receiver in two drafts is way over-board. It's indicative of a ridiculously incompetent GM and we all know he did nothing to sweep the front office clean of Gene Smith's lousy scouts.

Trading down then selecting Denard Robinson last year doesn't mean a thing.

Of those five WR picks (the trade up pick counts in the NFL), Caldwell will hit on just Allen Robinson.

Biff Bortles and a bunch of jack-rabbits. A fantasy football loving twelve year old's dream draft.

This can not possibly work out in the NFL.

Jungle Cat- I'm glad you are

Jungle Cat- I'm glad you are staying positive because it makes your life much better. Too many people only see the negative in everything and are avoided by those around them. I guess you will be the first in line on Monday to renew your season tickets or buy additional ones. Start working on those cheers for the home games next year. See you there!

That's going to be a tough sell in this town and of no consideration when attempting to improve the talent level of a team with six consecutive non-winning seasons. You might want to reveal less about yourself when you post.

Biff changes everything? Hard to do on that bench for the next several years.

The Jaguars rail special is going to arrive empty on Sundays. Nobody in Orlando is going to make the trip to watch Biff hold a clipboard. Sideshow Khan hits another screaming foul tip into the crowd.

Are you nuts?

Ask Hurricane fans how much they miss Jedd Fisch. They wanted to help him pack.

He conducts the worst offense in the NFL and just can't seem to understand this crazy notion about superior pass protection provided by a pair of elite, franchise offensive tackles.

Fifty sacks in 2012. Fifty sacks in 2013.

What the Jaguars give us is Biff Bortles and a bunch of jack-rabbits?

J.J. Watt. Jadeveon Clowney. Brian Cushing. Robert Mathis. Not only does this indicate lots and lots of passive aggressive behavior toward the Luke Joeckel selection last year (he will die trying to do this all by himself) it indicates a total lack of respect for the game.

Blake the Fake is gonna bake. Should have been Jake.
