The Jacksonville Jaguars announced their undrafted free agent class yesterday, and it consisted of 15 players. However, that number will be growing by one as they have snagged Brown quarterback EJ Perry, who initially was going to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Jags’ quarterback room will now have four players as a result, and that’s something coach Doug Pederson simply wouldn’t mind. He’s been on record for stating the importance of developing a good quarterback room, and Perry gives the group one more developmental option alongside Jake Luton.

Perry started his collegiate career at Boston College after enrolling there in 2017. In 2018, he participated in five games for them and was able to complete 27-of-39 passes (69.2%) in the process for 2,077 yards and two touchdowns.

In 2019 he transferred to Brown, where he was able to eventually become the Ivy League Player of the Year, which won him a trophy for the accomplishment known as the Bushnell Cup. During his last season with Brown, he was 295-of-444 (64.4%) and threw for 3,033 yards while adding 24 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Perry participated in the East-West Shrine Game this offseason, where he was able to get some exposure after completing 13-of-18 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns. He also showcased his athleticism by rushing for two two-point conversions. That helped his draft stock, and some had him going in the sixth and seventh rounds of mock drafts, as a result.
