South Carolina Gamecocks safety D.J. Swearinger has four visits scheduled and the Jaguars are one of the stops, according to Darryl Slater of The Post And Courier. The Jaguars were also spotted speaking with Swearinger at the South Carolina Pro Day on Wednesday by Colton Menzel of On Campus Sports.

Swearinger, 5-11, 208 pounds, became a starter for the Gamecocks in his sophomore season and was a second-team All-SEC player by the end of his senior year. Swearinger wasn't very impressive is the 40-yard dash at the 2013 NFL Combine, finishing in 4.67 seconds, but posted a 37-inch vertical jump and finished the 3-cone drill in 6.70 seconds. In his senior season, Swearinger finished with two interceptions, three tackles for a loss and 79 total tackles.

The Jaguars released starting strong safety Dawan Landry earlier in the offseason and have only Dwight Lowery, Chris Prosinski and Antwon Blake on roster at the position. Swearinger is also scheduled to visit the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns, per Slater.
