There are a few notable names on here, so we're going to go over a few profiles:

- Mike Brewster was considered one of the best centers going into this year,but dropped severely due to a combination of a mediocre senior season and a devaluing of centers in the draft, but he was still ranked as the 4th or 5th best center in draft. Peter Konz was considered as the best center and he fell to the late 2nd round. The second and third ranked  centers, Ben Jones and Phillip Blake fell to the 4th round and then he fell by the wayside. Brewster was  4-year starter at Ohio State, even when scandal rocked it's football program. The Jaguars might have a steal since he could probably provide depth on the interior and he could compete with John Estes at the Center spot .

- Ryan Davis is a slightly undersized defensive end from Bethune-Cookman who earned MEAC defensive player of the Year Honors after racking up 65 tackles, 12 sacks, 21.5 tackles for loss, and 8 forced fumes. This guy was a serious disruptive force in college and I can't wait to see what he can do in camp.

- Nelson Rosario had to deal with subpar QB play, but he still managed to accumulate 146 catches for 2300+ yards and 8 TDs. a 4-year letterman, he is a tall target, who can make great catches, but he is susceptible to mental mistakes, causing him to drop easy passes.

- Speaking of tall targets, TE Matt Veldman is a 6-7 target from North Dakota. He lettered in basketball as well and he will probably draw comparisons to the 6-8 Richard Angulo. who knows? We might have our very own Antonio Gates.
