The Jaguars will need wide receiver Marqise Lee to step into a contributing role this year.

And it looks like the rookie out of USC is ready to help out his new team. Speaking to FOX Sports Florida, Lee said he's already learned a lot with the Jags thus far.

"You hear a lot on the outside," Lee said. "But coming here, this is great. I've had an opportunity to be with these guys, and having them sit down with me and spend extra time going over plays and things like that, it shows how much leadership they have and how much of a family this team is. I appreciate it."

Lee described the locker room "like college all over again," stating that he's had a great time in Jacksonville so far. Of course, NFL games haven't been played yet.

With the Jaguars needing help at receiver, Lee figures to provide an immediate role in 2014.
