Winner of the 2013 Jim Thorpe Award given to the best defensive back in college football, Dennard is a former first round NFL Draft pick — but injuries derailed his career. He has missed 19 games in his six-year career.
But in those six years, he has been a solid nickel cornerback for the Bengals, compiling 274 tackles (five for a loss) and three interceptions.
It will be interesting to see what the Jaguars do with current nickel cornerback D.J. Hayden now that they’ve signed Dennard.
