Jaguars Visiting Some Small School Corners

The Jaguars are always looking for talent, and their search has taken them to some smaller schools. Read story and find out who and where.

Their search has taken them to little known Wingate college, as well as a stop at New Mexico State. The Jaguars are meeting with Wingate's cornerback, David Jones, as reported by Tony Pauline. Jones is a Division 2 all-american, who was not invited to the scouting combine in Indianapolis back in February. Jones is a 5'11.5", 193 lb. corner, who ran a 4.55/40 yard dash at his pro day. Jones dominated against lesser competition at Division 2 Wingate, and the Jaguars reportedly like his physical skills and work ethic. Jones is a candidate to be a second day selection.

The Jaguars are also visiting with New Mexico State cornerback, Courtney Bryan. Bryan is 5'11", 195 lbs., and earned all-WAC honors in 2006. Bryan is a good athlete, as evidenced by his pro-day times of 4.54 in the 40, 10'1" broad jump, 4.29 short shuttle, and his 37" vertical. Bryan has good ball skills, as he finished his senior season with 14 passes defensed, and four interceptions. A concern that may keep Bryan from being an NFL starter is strength. He was only able to put up 13 reps on the bench press, and he is a very average tackler.
