2017 NFL undrafted free agent tracker: Jacksonville Jaguars edition

NCAA Football: East-West Shrine Game Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 NFL Draft is over and the Jacksonville Jaguars built up their offense early in the draft while finding defenders later who can hopefully plug into specific roles.

2017 Jaguars draft class

Round Overall Player College
Round Overall Player College
1 4 RB Leonard Fournette LSU
2 34 OT Cam Robinson Alabama
3 68 DE Dawuane Smoot Illinois
4 110 WR Dede Westbrook Oklahoma
5 148 LB Blair Brown Ohio
7 222 CB Jalen Myrick Minnesota
7 240 FB Marquez Williams Miami

Seven picks and three of the first four were on offense. That tells you that this Jaguars front office and Tom Coughlin believe that the defense is in place and that playmakers are needed for the offense. They said as much leading up to the draft, but now that this draft is over they proved it.

The latter half of the draft was filled with players who represented positions deep in the draft — a cornerback and a running back (who is supposedly a fullback) but the final two rounds are just a preferred UDFA section anyway, so why not?

But before that, the UDFA signing period is upon us. Who's linked with the Jaguars and who have they already signed? Check out our live blog below.
