Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says first-round receiver Justin Blackmon looks about the way you’d expect a Top 5 rookie draft pick to look at the start of Organized Team Activities: Flashes of talent mixed with flashes of incompetence.

When he knows what he’s doing, he’s very good,” Mularkey said. “When he doesn’t, he’s lost.”

Those times when Blackmon is lost are to be expected, and Mularkey said he’s confident Blackmon will know the offense by the time training camp starts.

Which means that the very good Blackmon should be the one we see on the field when the regular season starts. If Mularkey is doing his job.
