JACKSONVILLE – An offseason theme continued late Saturday.

After addressing special teams in a big way during unrestricted free agency, the Jaguars with their final draft selection of the weekend addressed a specialist.

Logan Cooke, a punter from Mississippi State University, late Saturday became the Jaguars' second seventh-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Jaguars selected Cooke No. 247 overall.

Cooke (6-feet-5, 228 pounds) who also kicked off and kicked field goals for Mississippi State, punted his final three college seasons. He averaged 41.7 yards per punt in his career and 42.7 yards per punt as a senior.

The Jaguars during free agency signed safeties Don Carey III and Cody Davis and tight end Niles Paul to focus on special teams.
