The Jaguars have picked a small school wide receiver, from Monmouth.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked Monmouth wide receiver Neal Sterling in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. It's the first small school player the Jaguars have picked today, but Sterling is a massive human being of a wide receiver.Standing at 6'4" and 240 pounds, it makes me wonder if Sterling could transition to playing the tight end position, or maybe even H-back.

Sterling stood out at the College Gridiron Showcase All-Star game, running good routes and showing an impressive catch radius. To be honest however, other than that I have no idea about this player other than he's a complete giant.

Sterling played 43 games for Monmouth, with 212 receptions for 2,615 yards and 22 touchdowns, so he was a productive player there. While not a burner, Sterling did have an impressive 4.58 40-yard dash at his Pro Day, working out for NFL scouts. He will be an interesting player to watch.
