JACKSONVILLE – The deepening of the defense continues.
A day after selecting a defensive lineman in Round 1, the Jaguars on Friday deepened their secondary late in Round 3.
Ronnie Harrison, a strong safety from the University of Alabama, on Friday night became the Jaguars' third-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Jaguars selected Harrison No. 93 overall.
Harrison (6-feet-2, 207 pounds), who forewent his senior season to declare for the draft, was a second-team All Southeastern Conference selection in 2017.
He registered 74 tackles with 4.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks this past season. He also had three interceptions and four passes defensed as a junior in 2017. He started all games as a sophomore in 2016, registering 86 tackles with two interceptions and seven passes defensed.
He led Alabama with eight special teams tackles in 2016, and figures to play extensively on special teams as a rookie this season.
The Jaguars have selected Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison with the 93rd pick in the 2018 draft.
The Jaguars on Thursday selected University of Florida defensive lineman Taven Bryan with the No. 29 overall selection (Round 1) and selected wide receiver DJ Chark from Louisiana State with the No. 61 overall selection (Round 2) on Friday.
The Jaguars have four selections remaining: No. 129 overall (Round 4), No. 203 overall (Round 6), No. 230 overall (Round 7) and No. 247 overall (Round 7).
