Round 3: Oliver is the selection


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars went after need again.

This time, they did it by addressing a position that many analysts believed was one of the deepest in this year's draft.

Josh Oliver, a tight end from the San Jose State University, was the first of two Round 3 selections for the Jaguars in the 2019 NFL Draft. He was the fifth player selected in Round 3, the 69th selection overall.

The Jaguars also have the No. 98 selection (Round 3).

Oliver (6-feet-5, 249 pounds), who started 36 of 49 games in college, was a first-team All-Mountain West selection this past season. He caught 98 passes for 1,067 yards and seven touchdowns in four seasons, catching 56 passes for 709 yards and four touchdowns as a senior.

The Jaguars selected linebacker/defensive end Josh Allen from Kentucky in Round 1 (No. 7 overall) Thursday and Florida right tackle Jawaan Taylor in Round 2 (No. 35 overall) Friday, moving up from No. 38 in a trade with Oakland to select Taylor. They have five selections remaining: one in Round 3 (No. 98), none in Round 4, one in Round 5 (No. 140), one in Round 6 (No. 178) and two in Round 7 (Nos. 235 and 236).
