The Jaguars don’t have anyone from their 2013 draft class on the roster

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a successful — albeit expensive — day in free agency yesterday. They saw the departures of several underwhelming players such as Luke Joeckel and Johnathan Cyprien and added top-tier talent like A.J. Bouye and plug-and-play guys like Calais Campbell and Barry Church.

They also said goodbye to their 2013 draft class.

As Alfie Crow pointed out last night, not a single player remains with the Jaguars whom general manager Dave Caldwell drafted.

2013 Jaguars draft class

Round Selection Player Position Status
Round Selection Player Position Status
1 2 Luke Joeckel OT Seahawks
2 33 Johnathan Cyprien SS Titans
3 64 Dwayne Gratz CB Eagles
4 101 Ace Sanders WR Retired
5 135 Denard Robinson RB Free Agent
6 169 Josh Evans FS Washington
7 208 Jeremy Harris CB CFL
7 210 Demetrius McCray CB

As you can see, half of these players aren’t even on an NFL team anymore. Their first-round pick in Joeckel is on a one-year contract and the only player on a contract that runs past 2018 is Cyprien, who signed with the Titans yesterday.

This is a disaster of a draft class and inexplicably, Caldwell, the man in charge of it all, still has a job as general manager in the Jaguars front office. Granted, he absolutely took a demotion when Tom Coughlin was hired as Executive VP of Football Operations, but Caldwell is still gainfully employed.

Go Jaguars.
