2013 NFL Draft results: Jaguars pick Ace Sanders

Sanders is a speedster that should contribute on offense and special teams.


The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked South Carolina Gamecocks wide receiver and return specialist Ace Sanders with their fourth round selection on the third day of the NFL Draft. Sanders was a first-team All-SEC selection in his junior season before foregoing his senior season and declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft.


Sanders, 5-7, 173 pounds, likely won't find a spot in the starting lineup as the Jaguars have Cecil Shorts III and Justin Blackmon, but the shifty player might be able to find a role in the slot for the team. Where he definitely will contribute is as a returner where the Jaguars have struggled for a long time.

In the final day of the draft, it is less about addressing needs and more about adding talent that can contribute and find a role within the team.
