After the seven round 2018 NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars wasted no time in bringing in more prospects.
When the NFL draft concluded, many players found themselves unselected and still without a team. But that is not the end of the journey for most, as teams rush to sign the players who didn’t hear their name called on draft weekend.
For the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team has announced on Monday agreeing to terms with thirteen such players:
The full list of undrafted rookies joining the team include:
Cornerback Quenton Meeks, wide reciever Allen Lazard, linebacker Darius Jackson, cornerback Dee Delany, offensive lineman KC McDermott, safety C.J. Reavis, offensive lineman Tony Adams, linebacker Reggie Hunter, defensive lineman Lyndon Johnson, defensive lineman Michael Hughes, wide receiver Dorren Miller, linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka, and cornerback Tre Herndon.
As you may have noticed, the majority of signings are at positions that could use some bolstering behind the starters, particularly on the offensive line and at cornerback. With that, there’s a decent chance for a handful of these guys to be able to make the final roster for next season.
The biggest potential names of the group are Quenton Meeks and Allen Lazard. Both prospects were expected to be drafted, and frankly should have been. Lazard is a big body, possession wide receiver at 6’4″ and 227 lbs. The problem though is the amount of bodies already at the position, including new second round pick D.J. Chark. Quenton Meeks is a guy, who if he reaches the peak of his potential, could find himself on the team in a backup role in the secondary.
