JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The rebuilding Jacksonville Jaguars have drafted heavily on offense.

Now during Saturday’s final rounds it could be time for some defense - at least some defensive depth, anyway.

The Jaguars selected quarterback Blake Bortles, receiver Marqise Lee, receiver Allen Bernard and guard Brandon Linder in the first three rounds, continuing an offensive rebuild that started with the departure of longtime running back Maurice Jones-Drew and continued in free agency. Jacksonville re-signed quarterback Chad Henne, and then added guard Zane Beadles, running back Toby Gerhart and receiver Tandon Doss in free agency.

The defense got some tweaks, too, with the addition of linebacker Dekoda Watson, tackle Ziggy Hood and ends Chris Clemons and Red Bryant. General manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley haven’t touched that side of the ball in the draft - at least not yet.
