'15 NFL Draft: Jaguars select Koyack at No. 229


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars closed the draft with an offensive twist.

In doing so, they addressed the tight end position – adding depth and a run-blocking element to the position as the 2015 NFL Draft came to a close.

After selecting safety, wide receiver twice and defensive tackle early on Day 3, the Jaguars used the 12th selection of the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft – the No. 229 selection overall – on Notre Dame tight end Ben Koyack.

Koyack (6-feet-5, 255 pounds) caught 30 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns, and is considered a solid run blocker.

The Jaguars acquired the selection by swapping fourth-round selections with the New York Jets early in the day. The Jaguars sent the No. 103 selection in Round 4 to the New York Jets for the Jets' No. 104 selection and the Jets' No. 229 selection.

The Jaguars selected Louisville safety James Sample at No. 104 selection.

The Jaguars selected Florida State wide receiver Rashad Greene with the No. 139 selection in Round 5. They selected Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett with the No. 180 selection in Round 6.

The 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. They selected University of Florida edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. No. 3 overall Thursday night.
