'15 NFL Draft: Jaguars select Greene at No. 139


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars went back on the offensive in Round 5.

They went there by selecting a wide receiver some analysts believe talented enough to have been selected earlier in the draft.

After selecting safety early on Day 3, the Jaguars focused on offense early in the fifth round Saturday afternoon, using the third selection of Round 5 of the 2015 NFL Draft – the No. 139 selection overall – on Florida State University wide receiver Rashad Greene.

Greene (5-feet-10, 182 pounds), who played all four seasons at FSU, also could return punts and he potentially can play the slot receiver role. He had more than 1,000 yards receiving each of the past two seasons, catching 99 passes for 1,365 yards and seven touchdowns this past season and 76 passes for 1,128 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior.

He was a first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a senior.

Jaguars selected Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon in the second round Friday and selected South Carolina guard A.J. Cann in the third round. The Jaguars selected University of Florida edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. with the draft's No. 3 overall selection Thursday night.

The Jaguars early Saturday selected Louisville safety James Sample with the No. 104 selection in Round 4. Moments before, they had swapped the No. 103 selection they held entering the day for the Jets' No. 104 selection and a seventh-round selection. That seventh-round selection is the No. 229 overall.

The Jaguars also hold the No. 180 selection in Round 6 and the No. 220 selection on Round 7.
