The first undrafted free agent signing for the Jacksonville Jaguars is in the books, as Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars have signed Dylan Moses, LB from the University of Alabama.
Moses was a highly touted recruit for the Crimson Tide, but tore his ACL in his sophomore season. Despite returning to the starting lineup in his junior year, he didn’t have the impact he was expected to. In his final season at Alabama, Moses racked up 80 tackles with 1.5 sacks and an interception.
The Jaguars don’t have a problem with drafting fast linebackers with knee injuries; in fact they did it in 2017, drafting LB Myles Jack in the second round. Obviously Jack and Moses aren’t the same person, nor is the front office the same. But if Moses can have the same impact as Jack, he could potentially be a boom.
Moses won’t have to play immediately, because he’s behind Joe Schoebert and Myles Jack at his position. But by signing with Jacksonville, he has a chance to be around NFL strength and training coaches, and further develop into the player he was expected to be.
