Jaguars Get Deeper at Wideout

The Jaguars added depth at special teams as well as the wide receiver position by adding former Indianapolis Colt, Craphonso Thorpe. Thorpe is a semi-local Florida State product who was originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth-round of the 2005 draft.

Thorpe played the 2007 with the Colts, and was active for five regular season games and caught 12 passes for 70 yards, including four first-downs and a touchdown. The 6'1", 187 lb. receiver also chipped in on punt and kick return duties, as he averaged a modest 5.0 yards per punt return, and a little better than 21 yards per kickoff return last season, including a long return of 40 yards.

The former FSU standout adds more speed to an already speedy receiving corps, and a possible kickoff return man which the team is looking for to give running back Maurice Jones-Drew a bit of a break as he will likely be implemented more in the Jaguars offense. If Thorpe is going to earn a roster spot, it will likely be with a special teams contribution. JagNation has a full scouting report coming shortly.
