The SportsXchange

The Jacksonville Jaguars will host top quarterback prospects Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, UCF's Blake Bortles, Fresno State's Derek Carr and Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo this week, according the multiple reports Tuesday.

Manziel is scheduled to fly to Jacksonville on Tuesday and will visit with the Jaguars on Wednesday, along with the four other quarterbacks, according ESPN.com.

Two of the club's other top options with the No. 3 overall pick, Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson and Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack, also are due to arrive Tuesday, according to NFL.com. On Wednesday, UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr will visit the Jaguars as well.

Manziel completed a visit with the Oakland Raiders on Monday and is slated to meet with the Houston Texans, who own the first overall pick, later this month, ESPN.com reported. Manziel visited with the New England Patriots last month and also met with Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer following his pro day on March 27.

Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater and Carr all have been tabbed as possible first-round draft picks, while Garoppolo has emerged as a top-10 quarterback prospect.

The Jaguars went 4-12 under first-year coach Gus Bradley in 2013, their third consecutive losing season.
