Breakdown of the Third Day of the Draft for the Jaguars breaks down day three for the Jaguars, and gives their take on some background on the players the team picked.

Round 4, Pick 17 (114) Cecil Shorts WR 6’0″ 205 Mount Union 4.9

Pick Analysis: The Jaguars get one of the most dynamic small-school pass catchers in the draft with the addition of Shorts. He is a polished route runner with outstanding hands and big-play ability. If he transitions quickly to the pro game, he could become a pivotal part of their passing game in the near future.

Round 4, Pick 24 (121) (From Saints) Chris Prosinski DB 6’1″ 210 Wyoming 2.0

Pick Analysis: The Jaguars have struggled in the back end at the safety position. Prosinski isn’t a dynamic playmaker against the pass, but he is a factor as a run defender and is smart (he had option to attend Princeton and Harvard, among other schools). He gives them a viable backup option at either safety spot and a high-motor special teams player to their kick coverage units. Wasn’t invited to the combine but really got on teams’ radars with an outstanding pro day.

Round 5, Pick 16 (147) Rod Issac DB Middle Tennessee St. —

Pick Analysis: Issac is regarded as a sleeper selection in the secondary. He has intriguing physical tools and could be a solid developmental prospect for the Jaguars.
