JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars got defensive again as Saturday afternoon continued.

They also made a move to bolster their special teams, taking a player who could give them depth at the linebacker position, too.

Blair Brown, a linebacker from Ohio University, became the Jaguars' fifth selection of the '17 draft Saturday afternoon. The Jaguars selected him with the fourth selection of the fifth round, the No. 148 selection overall.
Brown (5-feet-11, 238 pounds) was an All-MAC selection this past season, leading the team with 128 tackles including 15 for loss and 4.5 sacks.

The Jaguars selected Louisiana State running back Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall selection of the draft Thursday, then selected Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson with second selection of Round 2 Friday – the No. 34 overall selection.

The Jaguars selected Illinois defensive end Duwuane Smoot with the fourth selection of Friday's third round, the No. 68 selection overall. They selected Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook in the fourth round Saturday with the No. 110 overall selection.
