Pro Day roundup: Jaguars send 6 reps to Ohio State
The NFL world descended on Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday for the Ohio State Pro Day. While the Jacksonville Jaguars probably didn’t care much about the day’s star, quarterback C.J. Stroud, they were still one of the most represented teams in attendance.
According to Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy, the Jaguars had six representatives at the Ohio State workout, more than all but five teams. The Carolina Panthers led the way with an absurdly large group that included ownership and just about the entire front office.
While Carolina has its eyes on Stroud, there are a few players who could make sense for the Jaguars. At the top of the list are behemoth right tackle prospect Dawand Jones and pass rusher Zach Harrison.
Jones measured in at a ridiculous 6’8, 374 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Harrison checks all the physical boxes the Jaguars look for in a pass rusher at 6’6, 274 pounds with 36.25-inch arms; however, he never recorded four sacks in a season at Ohio State.
