The Jacksonville Jaguars have plucked up a quarterback.

The team on Saturday selected Nebraska’s Tanner Lee with their sixth-round pick (No. 203 overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft.

“He’s interesting,” one scout told Bob McGinn of BobMcGinnFootball.com. “He’s just so inconsistent.”

Lee’s scouting report is littered with concerning weaknesses — “brings trouble upon himself,” and “oblivious to edge pressure and freezes under duress from interior rush” — but plenty of college players hit the NFL with areas of need.
