Immediately following the draft teams reach out to players who were not selected in rounds 1-7.  Some were contacted well before the draft at workouts to be informed that if they weren’t drafted the team would reach out to them.  Others are completely surprised to get a call from a team.  Being signed as an undrafted free agent is a big deal.  While you’re not guaranteed a contract and you’re not guaranteed a spot on the roster, becoming a UDFA is your first step at impressing a football team in their drills, their workouts, and in their schemes.  Some, like Tony Romo and Arian Foster, rise to the occasion but many wash out.

That said, it’s still exciting to see which ones sign with which teams and whether or not they really have a shot at making the final roster.  The Jacksonville Jaguars, with their extremely thin lineup, present more of an opportunity to make the final 53 than some other teams.  Here are the guys who have signed with the Jaguars for at least a tryout contract:

  • Arizona QB Matt Scott
  • Cincinnati LB Maalik Bomar
  • Nevada OT Jeff Nady
  • Murray State OL Roddy Tomlin
  • Alabama LS Carson Tinker
  • Georgia DT Abry Jones
  • Vanderbilt CB Trey Wilson
  • San Jose State TE Ryan Otten
  • Nevada LB Jeremiah Green
  • Virginia OLB La’Roy Reynolds
  • Vanderbilt QB Jordan Rodgers
  • Florida State FB Lonnie Pryor
  • South Carolina K Adam Yates
  • Illinois State LB Mike Zimmer
  • Rutgers OT R.J. Dill
  • Georgia Tech DT T.J. Barnes
  • Nebraska FB Kyler Reed
  • Massachusetts G Stephane Milhim
  • Western Michigan OLB Paul Hazel
  • Arizona State WR/KR Jamal Miles
  • Southern Oregon WR Cole McKenzie
  • Texas A&M CB Steven Terrell
  • Ole Miss DT Uriah Grant
  • Tulsa FB Willie Carter

The Jaguars aren’t done signing players, but there are a few of note to keep an eye on.  Arizona QB Matt Scott could have been a later round pick and many Jags fans had their eyes on him.  Jordan Rodgers from Vanderbilt is the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers’ little brother.  Also keep an eye out for linebacker and defensive line prospects as the Jaguars are thin at outside linebacker and need help on the defensive line still.  Those players have a real opportunity to make the team.

We’ll try and keep everything updated as more players are added.
