The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2012 fifth-round draft pick Brandon Marshall to a contract today. Marshall was the 142nd overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft and is the fourth of the Jaguars' six draft picks to sign a contract. Length and terms of his contract are undisclosed.
Marshall, a 6-2, 243-pound linebacker, never missed a game in four seasons at the University of Nevada, playing in all 52 games for the Wolfpack. During his senior season, Marshall registered a career-high 102 tackles, with 10 tackles for loss and two sacks.
Marshall, 22, is the second Nevada player drafted by the Jaguars in franchise history, following linebacker Jorge Cordova in 2004. He is the first linebacker selected by the Jaguars since 2008, and the 19th linebacker selected by the Jaguars in franchise history.
Marshall is a native of North Las Vegas, Nevada, where he lettered in track and played linebacker, running back and tight end at Cimarron-Memorial High School.
