The Jaguars have agreed to terms with 24 undrafted rookies and GM Gene Smith has again dipped into some small schools for prospects.
South Dakota State? Check. Colorado School of Mines? Yup. West Virginia Tech? Accounted for.

UConn linebacker Scott Lutrus was seen as a possible late-round pick who projects as backup and special teamer.
Central Florida receiver Jamar Newsome projected as a player who might be effective on screens and crossing routes.
