Jaguars sign Montana pass rusher Tyrone Holmes

New, comments

The Jaguars have signed both of their sixth-round picks on Thursday, with pass rusher Tyrone Holmes officially joining the team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Montana pass rusher Tyrone Holmes. Holmes had an impressive pro day for NFL scouts this spring and caught the eye of general manager Dave Caldwell early on.

Holmes tested as one of the best athletes among all edge rushers in the entire draft class and dominated his level of competition from a production standpoint. I'm not sure how early Holmes will make an impact or be given a chance to crack the rotation, but I am sure Holmes will be the best athlete among the Jaguars' edge rushing group from opening day.

You may not have heard about Holmes leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft, but he's a great fit in terms of defensive scheme that Gus Bradley and Todd Wash are trying to build here in Jacksonville.
