Jaguars Select Ohio State DT Michael Bennett in 6th Round

Ohio State Buckeyes v Indiana Hoosiers11-23-2013

The Jaguars have selected Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

The Jaguars took Bennett with the 180th overall pick, getting a productive college player who should provide depth along the D-line.

Jacksonville will be without starting defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks for at least the beginning of training camp. Marks tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the season finale and is working to return this fall.

The 6-foot-2, 288-pound Bennett started every game the last two seasons for the Buckeyes. He is the second defensive linemen selected by the Jaguars in the draft, joining Florida defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. Jacksonville chose Fowler with the third overall pick Thursday night.

With the NFL Draft complete, it’s now up to Jaguars fans to do their part by showing up games at home or on the road. Hipmunk.com can be any fans No. 1 travel resource, with flights to and from Jacksonville, as well as hotels in any major city near any stadium, including four Jacksonville hotel options under $70 per night.

    Many NFL experts think that the Jags did very little to truly improve their talent pool vis-a-vis the rest of the NFL.
