Round 3: Williams is the selection


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars got defensive again late Friday.

After selecting offensive line and tight end early, the Jaguars addressed linebacker depth with their final Day 2 selection.

Quincy Williams, a linebacker from Murray State University, was the second of two third-round selections by the Jaguars Friday in the 2019 NFL Draft. He was the 34th selection of Round 3, the No. 98 selection overall.

Williams (5-feet-11, 222 pounds), 22, registered a sack and two interceptions in 2018. He is the brother of Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, the No. 3 overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft by the New York Jets.

The Jaguars selected linebacker/defensive end Josh Allen from Kentucky in Round 1 (No. 7 overall), Florida right tackle Jawaan Taylor in Round 2 (No. 35 overall) and San Jose State University tight end Josh Oliver in Round 3 (No. 69 overall). They have four selections remaining Saturday: 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).
