Jaguars sign three

The Jacksonville Jaguars agreed to terms with three of their eight unsigned draft picks: fifth rounders, placekicker Josh Scobee and cornerback Chris Thompson and seventh round pick defensive end Bobby McCray. All three are expected to sign their contracts when they report for training camp on Friday.

Scobee, 22, was the 137th overall selection in the draft and was one of three fifth round picks for the Jaguars. The 6-1, 191-pound placekicker earned All-Conference honors three consecutive years after taking over the kicking duties as a freshman. Scobee holds the Louisiana Tech records of most field goals (66), most extra points (145) and most career points (343). The Longview, Texas native was the highest drafted placekicker by the Jaguars.

Thompson, 22, was the 150th overall selection in the draft and was one of the three fifth round picks for the Jaguars. The 6-0, 187-pound cornerback started his final 32 games at Nicholls State. Thompson holds the team record with eight blocked kicks and earned All-America honors as a junior. The New Orleans native has 148 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, 11 interceptions and 28 passes defensed for his career.

McCray, 22, was the 249th overall pick in the draft as the Jaguars' only compensatory selection. The 6-6, 251-pound defensive end was a four-year letterman at Florida playing in 36 games and starting 15. McCray earned All-Conference second-team honors as a junior and senior and was named the team's Most Outstanding Defensive Lineman as a senior after finishing with 50 tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss and 9.5 sacks.

Players are scheduled to report for the start of training camp on Friday, with practices beginning Saturday.
