Jags Have a Dinner Date with Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan

Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan had a dinner meeting Thursday with the Jaguars, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. Kerrigan was a three-year starter for the Boilermakers, a team captain and an academic All-American selection. The Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Lineman of the Year recorded 70 tackles, 26 tackles for losses, 12 1/2 sacks and five forced fumbles.

“I was just really sure of myself every snap,” Kerrigan said at the NFL scouting combine. “I had a good idea of what plays were coming and that came from watching a lot of game tape and I was able to take that to the field and have a good idea of what play was coming. That allowed me to be a little bit quicker at the start when the ball was snapped.” Kerrigan was named Most Valuable Player on defense and was named the first consensus All-American at Purdue in the past three decades.
