Jags Looking For Upgrades At Receiver
"I just want to go represent for the school," Jean told NFLDraftScout.com. "Florida Atlantic gave me the opportunity to play football when nobody else did."
The Jaguars worked Jean out privately at his Pro Day where he ran a 4.52 40-yard dash. Jean is expected to be a late-round draft pick.
Another player that the Jaguars showed interest in is University of Miami wideout Leonard Hankerson. The ultra-productive former Hurricane is the schools all-time leader in touchdown receptions and he showed himself very well at the Senior Bowl back in January.
"I'm just trying to go out here and play as well as I can and hopefully impress some people that will offer me a job," Hankerson said during Senior Bowl week.
If the Jaguars are going to make Hankerson their first-ever draft pick from "The U", they're likely going to have to pull the trigger in the first or early in the second round. Hankerson has had an excellent offseason of workouts, which included a five-catch, 100-yard performance in the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-2, 209 pound receiver has cemented himself as a Top Five receiver in this draft.
Another Senior Bowler who the Jaguars have showed significant interest in is former ECU all-everything guy Dwayne Harris. At 5-foot-10, 203 pounds, Harris displays the ability to be a slot receiver on the next level as well as helping out on special teams as a punt return man. Harris led the C-USA last year in receptions per game (7.8) while earning C-USA offensive MVP honors from the coaches. Harris helped lead his East Carolina Pirates to a pair of Conference USA championships.
"I'll do whatever the coaches ask of me, I just want a chance to play at the next level," Harris said.
Harris is a bit of a "slash" or utility player as he has played some running back, quarterback, returned both kickoffs and punts, as well as being a standout wide receiver. Harris is likely to be a late-round pick.
