General manager Dave Caldwell knew he needed to added receivers with questions about the future of Justin Blackmon. In that vain, he added the top-rated receiver left entering the second day of the draft.

Lee is a dynamic playmaker who will look very good across from Cecil Shorts. The USC product is uber-athletic, has speed and can navigate in traffic. His terrific run-after-catch ability will be huge in today's age of receiver screens.

Lee was one of the top receivers entering the college season, but was hampered by injury and poor play from University of Southern California quarterbacks.

Some teams flagged Lee's knee injury as a reason he fell out of the first round, and perhaps off their boards completely.

Robinson, on the other hand, has great size at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds and will provide a valuable red-zone target for Bortles. He lacks elite top-end speed, but is quick off the line. 

On Day 2, Caldwell went out and secured two dynamic pass-catchers the Jags hope will combine with Bortles for a powerful offense for years to come.
