The Jacksonville Jaguars selected wide receiver Jalen Camp out of Georgia Tech in the sixth round (No. 209 overall) of the 2021 NFL Draft. As of now, this is the team’s final selection of this year’s draft.

Camp, listed at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, led the Yellow Jackets with 29 receptions for 439 yards (15.1 yards per catch) and four touchdowns in 2020. Overall, he caught 48 passes for 808 yards (16.8 yards per catch) and five touchdowns in 48 career games.

Camp also has very good speed with a 4.43-second 40-yard dash time at his pro day. He also showed off his explosiveness with a 39.5-inch vertical jump, and his strength with 30 bench press reps of 225 pounds. His combination of size and speed, as well as his reliable hands, makes him a highly intriguing add for the Jaguars’ wide receivers room.

He joins quarterback Trevor Lawrence (Clemson), running back Travis Etienne (Clemson), cornerback Tyson Campbell (Georgia), offensive tackle Walker Little (Stanford), safety Andre Cisco (Syracuse), defensive tackle Jay Tufele (USC), defensive end Jordan Smith (UAB) and tight end Luke Farrell (Ohio State) in Jacksonville’s 2021 draft class — the inaugural class of the Urban Meyer regime.

Unless the Jaguars trade up for another player, that completes the three-day draft event for Jacksonville.
