Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Keelan Cole didn’t miss a beat after jumping from Kentucky Wesleyan’s Steele Stadium in Owensboro, Ky. to playing against the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football last night.
A former Louisville Central standout, Cole shattered receiving records at Kentucky Wesleyan, which earned him an undrafted free agent contract with Jacksonville. Then last night in his first NFL preseason game, he torched the Patriots defense for a 97-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne.
