If last night was any indication of what pro free agency will be like, put your seatbelts on. We got the word late last night that NFL teams could begin negotiating with undrafted free agents immediately, but will not be able to officially sign them until 10:00 AM today. I kept a running list last night, but when the flow of information slowed to a crawl for about an hour I packed it in, because I expect today to be a long day.
Click the jump for an updated list of undrafted free agents who have agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars. This list is unofficial until 10:00AM. Players can still change their minds. For a full list of all teams, check out NEPatriotsDraft.com, they typically have the most up to date and accurate list.
Marc Schiechl, DE/LB, Colorado School of Mines
Schiechl has been a little bit of a meme joke around here, but not as a slight to him. He measures in at about 6'2" and 252 pounds. He played defensive end at the Colorado School of Mines, but was viewed by most teams as a 3-4 rush linebacker. It's possible he could play a bit of right end with his hand on the ground, but I'm curious to see if the Jaguars stand him up. His measurables and production have been fantastic.
Matt Estrada, S, Northern Arizona
Estrada is a bit of an undersized safety at about 5'10" and 190 pounds. He's more of a strong safety with OK speed. I'd expect him to initially compete for a position playing special teams.
Greg Ellingson WR, Florida International
Ellingson is a nicely sized receiver at 6'3" and about 200 pounds. He ran a nice 40-time for his size in the mid 4.4 range. In his senior season at FIU, he finished with 43 catches for 612 yards with 5 touchdowns. For his career he averaged 15.4 yards per catch.
DuJuan Harris, RB, Troy
Harris is a bit of an "undersized" running back, by which I mean short. He's about 5'7" and 200 pounds, whom many have referred to the poor man's Maurice Jones-Drew. He plays a similar style to Jones-Drew as well as being of similar stature. He has nice speed, running in the low 4.4 range and can make plays out of the backfield. He could get a look as a kick returner and 3rd down back.
Scott Riddle, QB, Elon
I wasn't expecting the Jaguars to sign a 4th quarterback and just push the extra reps to first round pick Blaine Gabbert, but the Jaguars picked up Scott Riddle. Riddle was a 4-year starter for the Pheonix and put up some good numbers. He consistently improved year to year. Riddle's a bit on the short side for an NFL QB at only about 6'1", so he'll be interesting to watch in camp. He also played baseball, of which I'm told he's got a pretty bad temper.
Kyle Miller, TE, Mount Union
Miller is Jaguars draft pick Cecil Shorts III's teammate. He's likely to get more of a look as a special teams player more than anything, due to his ability to longsnap. There are some however, that think he could make a roster as a tight end as well.
T.J. Heath, CB, Jacksonville State
Heath is a bit light for a defensive back in the NFL at 6'0" and about 180 pounds. He's viewed as a combo defensive back, with the ability to play both corner and free safety. He has good speed as well, running in the low 4.4's and had 10 career interceptions in his college career.
Kevin Rutland, CB, Missouri
Rutland, like Heath, is a bit of a combo defensive back with the ability to play corner and safety. This will help both players trying to stick on a roster. Rutland has good size, but could add a few more pounds at 6'0" and 190 pounds. He runs in the mid 4.4 range. Many expected Rutland to be a 4th or 5th round pick, so he's clearly a priority free agent.
Michael Lockley, ILB, Florida Atlantic
Lockely has solid size for the inside linebacker/mike linebacker position at 6'2" and about 240 pounds. He didn't run well at his pro day, coming in the 40 with times in the 4.6 and 4.7 range, but he's a down hill linebacker. He was a leader for the Golden Panthers defense at the middle linebacker spot. It looked like quite a few 3-4 teams had interest in him.
Brandon Harper, OL, Duke
I wish I could give you a quick run down of Brandon Harper, but I honestly don't know anything about him other than he's an interior offensive lineman. He's got the perfect size for a combo guard at 6'2" and 320 pounds.
Scott Lutrus, ILB, UConn
Lutrus is a player I thought would definitely be drafted in the late rounds, so I would consider him a priority free agent and a good get for the Jaguars. He's a linebacker who can play all of the positions, but most saw him as a good fit on the inside. He has good size at about 6'2" and 240 pounds with a decent 4.6 40-yard dash time. He's also coming off a neck injury, which could be a reason he went undrafted.
Eric Gordon, LB, Michigan State
Gordon is a smallish fast linebacker that I expected teams to look at as a strong safety possibility, coming in at about 6'0" and 225 pounds. He ran well in the high 4.4's, but in order to play linebacker in the NFL he's going to have to bulk up quite a bit. He could be in the mold of a Chad Nkang type, as a special teams player.
JoJo Dickson, ILB, Idaho
What a fantastic linebacker name. Dickson is another inside linebacker that got looks from 3-4 teams. He's got good size for the inside at 6'1" and 245 pounds running around the 4.7 range. Worth noting that JoJo broke his leg and missed quite a bit of the 2010 season. He's definitely strong however, he put up 37 reps of 225 at his pro day.
Tommy Gallarda, TE, Boise State
Gallarda has great size for the tight end position at 6'5" and about 262 pounds. He has typical tight end speed, running in the 4.8 range, which is about average. He's coming off a foot injury, so that will be something to watch in training camp. He has soft hands and was a big redzone target for the Broncos. He only had 25 career receptions in the Boise State spread, but 9 of those were for touchdowns.
Jamar Newsome, WR, Central Florida
Newsome is a smaller wide receiver, more in the mold of a slot guy at 6'0" and about 200 pounds. He's got good speed, running in the mid 4.4 range at his pro day and at the NFL Combine. He has great athleticism and good quickness, but his hands are a bit suspect and he seems to fight the football.
Richard Murphy, RB, LSU
Murphy has kind of known he'd be a Jaguar for a while, our own Adam Stites reported it a while ago. He's a bit of an enigma, but a very talented running back. He's battled hamstring and knee issues in his college career, but he was highly touted by a lot of NFL scouts. I wouldn't be shocked at all to see him stashed on the roster somehow.
