With the NFL Draft later tonight the Jacksonville Jaguars will be adding talent for the next few days. But the possibility to continue to add that talent even after the draft is real.
The anticipation around the NFL draft will end later tonight when the first round begins. Whoever the Jaguars pick it will be exciting to see who joins the team. Once the NFL draft is over the game that is undrafted free agency begins.
Jaguars General Manager Dave Caldwell has had his hit and misses throughout his tenure. However, when undrafted free agency begins keep an eye on who the Jaguars may sign.
Sure, most of these players will come in as camp bodies. While they have little shot at making the roster the opportunity to showcase their talent is real. The point being the Jags will be giving these players real opportunities to compete.
Previous undrafted free agents for the Jags include Abry Jones. He went undrafted out of the University of Georgia in 2013. Jones is a perfect example of someone outplaying their lack of draft status and competing to eventually find a roster spot. Throughout his tenure with the Jags Jones has been able to make an impact and is also quietly become a leader on the Jaguars defense.
Also, Bryan Walters originally went undrafted in 2010. Since joining the Jags in 2015 Walters had over sixty reception, 500 yards, and three touchdowns. This is another example of how the Jags have been able to find players and give them a chance to showcase their talent.
The Jaguars have a track record of being able to find talent after the draft. Once the NFL draft is over the chance to sign an impact player is a real possibility. Whoever gets this opportunity it will be exciting to see how it plays out.
