Jaguars draft Pittsburgh S Erick Hallett II with No. 208 pick

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Pittsburgh safety Erick Hallett II in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL draft with the No. 208 overall pick.

Hallett was Pittsburgh’s full-time starter at free safety in the last two seasons and earned Second Team All-ACC honors as a senior. In his career with the Panthers, Hallett recorded eight interceptions and returned one for a touchdown.

At his pro day, Hallett measured in at 5’10, 195 pounds and recorded a 37.5-inch vertical. He was reportedly timed at 4.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

In Jacksonville, Hallett joins a suddenly crowded group of safeties. The team already has a starting duo in Andre Cisco and Rayshawn Jenkins, and frequently rotates Andrew Wingard into the lineup. Earlier in the fifth round, the team added former Texas A&M safety Antonio Johnson.

Hallett was the third of three sixth-round picks for the Jaguars. The team is scheduled to pick three times in the seventh round, as well.
