05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: Round 2/39 -- Marqise Lee, WR, 6-0, 192, Southern California...The Jaguars coveted the Biletnikoff Award winner in his sophomore season, when he caught 118 passes for 1,721 yards. The numbers dropped off considerably a year ago to 57 catches and 791 yards, but he was slowed by a knee injury. The Jaguars think he is the playmaker they were lacking the last couple of years. He could show it as both a receiver and kick returner. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - Turns out the Jaguars didn't need to make the trade after all. Jacksonville tried to move up at the start of the second round fearing coveted pick Marquise Lee would be off the board by the time the Jaguars were ready to pick with the seventh selection of the second round. Jacksonville couldn't find any trade partners and thus had to sweat out whether Lee, the talented wide receiver from UCLA would be there for the taking with the 39th overall pick of the draft. When asked if he thought the Jaguars had "stolen" a pick when Lee was still available in the second round, Jaguars general manager David Caldwell just smiled and nodded. "Yeah, we feel really good about it obviously. Like I said, we were looking to trade up to get him and we couldn't get that done," Caldwell said.
After getting the quarterback they wanted - and needed - in the first round, Lee was the perfect complement to Blake Bortles. The uncertainty of Justin Blackmon's status made wide receiver a priority for the Jaguars and they acted quickly, selecting both Lee and Penn State receiver Allen Robinson in the second round. It was an indication that the Jaguars have all but given up on Blackmon. They have received no word from the league as to whether he would even be eligible to return next fall, and even if he was, the Jaguars would then have to make a decision whether they wanted to keep him around and run the risk of yet another suspension. "We've moved on for this year," Caldwell said. The selection of Lee and Robinson solidified the announcement. - The Sports Xchange

05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 25/5. *Marqise Lee, WR, Southern Cal, 6-0, 192, 4.43, 1...As a freshman phenom in 2011, Lee put his amazing athletic skills on display and looked the part of a top three draft pick destined for Heisman discussions. He is an elite athlete who could do it all, and maybe still can. But with less complementary talent and myriad physical maladies, his last two years were less spectacular. Still, this is a tough kid from a tougher background filled with gangs, killings (brother was murdered) and family challenges (father is deaf). He never complained, just used his skills as a ticket out. And now it is time to get the ticket punched. Frankly: The image of Lee toying with defenders in 2011 is hard to forget. If he can play back to that level, Lee will be a steal anywhere beyond the middle of the first round. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - Dane Brugler's 2014 NFL Draft Final Top-50: 30. Marquise Lee WR, USC (6-0, 192, 4.52, JR)...Lee set several program records for the Trojans over his career and is a fun player to watch with the ball. He does have some medical concerns with his knee and will have his share of drops, but Lee has cat-like quickness to get open and create as a ballcarrier. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
