Jaguars Select 29th in April 15-16 NFL Draft

     The Jacksonville Jaguars have the 29th selection in the first 
 round and 11 picks overall when the 65th NFL draft takes place on Saturday 
 and Sunday, April 15-16.  The two-day selection process will begin at 
 12:00 noon on Saturday, April 15, with the first three  rounds being 
 completed that day.  The remaining four rounds will begin at 11:00 a.m. 
 on Sunday, April 16.
     The Jaguars will head into their sixth NFL season once again as the 
 defending AFC Central Division champions, and they are looking to strengthen 
 their team through the draft, as they seek a fifth consecutive appearance in 
 the playoffs.
     In addition to their first-round pick, the Jaguars have 10 other 
 choices - one in each of the second through seventh rounds, as well as four 
 compensatory selections in the seventh round.  The Jaguars acquired the 
 compensatory picks because they suffered a net loss of certain quality 
 unrestricted free agents last year.

 New York City. The entire draft will be televised nationally on ESPN and ESPN2.  
 ESPN will carry the proceedings from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday, 
 and ESPN2 will take over the broadcast until the end of the day's drafting.  
 ESPN will resume broadcasting at 11:00 a.m. Sunday until 1:00 p.m., and ESPN2

 Rounds 3-7.  Last year the first round took 5 hours and 4 minutes, the second round 
 lasted 2 hours and 50 minutes, and the third round took 1 hour and 37 minutes.
     A total of 254 players will be selected by the 31 teams, including 
 223 regular selections and 31 compensatory picks that were awarded to 14 teams which
 suffered a net loss of certain quality unrestricted free agents last year.  All of 
 the compensatory picks fall in Rounds 4-7.
     In addition to the cable television broadcasts, WBWL (600 AM) will broadcast 
 live from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday, featuring Jaguars radio broadcasters

 the Jaguars lockerroom, with Matt Robinson and Brian Sexton contributing and a live

     The special will feature exclusive footage from inside the Jaguars' draft 
 room at the time of the team's first selection.
     The draft will also be covered live on the Internet at www.nfl.com and
