Jags Select A Safety

The Jaguars safety position was the worst in the NFL last season and they finally did something about it. Jacksonville kept the small school mojo going as they selected Chris Prosinski from Wyoming.

In the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select defensive back Chris Prosinski with the 121st pick. Finally, the Jaguars select a defensive player in the draft. Prosinski came in for a late private visit with the Jaguars that I reported last week. He's very productive and has some nice measureables.

He's a little over 6-0 and 200lbs playing the free safety position at Wyoming. At his Pro Day, Prosinski ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds and 4.44 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. He measured an 11-foot-2 broad jump, a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and completed 14 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press.

A 3-year starter for the Cowboys, Prosinski finished off his career with two straigh 100+ tackle seasons and forcing 4 fumbles. He also intercepted 5 passes in his career, including two in his final season at Wyoming.
