Luzar has tools to be Jones replacement


The Jaguars added blocking power when they selected Virginia tight end Chris Luzar with a fourth-round pick the team acquired from Washington in a third-round trade yesterday. Luzar, 6-7, 270, is an accomplished blocker who has outstanding foot speed for a player his size. Coughlin believes Luzar could develop into a quality receiver while providing the Jaguars with two-tight-end-set blocking ability. Luzar was drafted to replace Damon Jones as the blocking complement to Kyle Brady.

"We think he's an ascending player. We see him as a player who will gain in strength. Good blocker; he'll be even better," Coughlin said.

The Jaguars have no choice in the fifth round, having traded that pick last year for an extra sixth-round pick they used to select guard Chad Ward.
