Jaguars sign 7th-round pick Jeremy Harris

Jacksonville Jaguars

Harris is a 6-2, 185-pound cornerback who has experience with DeWayne Walker.

The first of the Jaguars' eight draft picks signed on Monday afternoon, as the team announced that cornerback Jeremy Harris had agreed to and signed his first NFL contract.

Harris, 22, was the seventh of the team's eight draft picks, taken two selections before another cornerback Demetrius McCray. At 6-2, 185 pounds, Harris fits the lengthy mold that Gus Bradley has targeted during his time as a defensive coordinator.

Harris played two seasons at New Mexico State under the tutelage of head coach DeWayne Walker after transferring from East Los Angeles Junior College. Walker was hired as the defensive backs coach for the Jaguars earlier in the offseason. In his senior season, Harris was named a first-team All-WAC defensive back after recording 56 tackles and 10 passes defended.
