Round 6: Luton the selection at No. 189


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars went quarterback in Round 6 again.

The selection on Saturday was a well-traveled player with impressive measurables who finished his career in the Pac-12.

Jake Luton, a quarterback from Oregon State University, became the Jaguars' 10th selection of the 2020 NFL Draft Saturday afternoon. The Jaguars selected Luton with the 10th pick of the sixth round, the No. 189 selection overall.

The Jaguars selected their starting quarterback with a very similar background, Gardner Minshew II, in Round 6 last year.

Luton (6-feet-6, 224 pounds), a redshirt senior who spent six years in college, began his career at Idaho before transferring first to Ventura Community College and finally to Oregon State. He played his final three seasons at OSU, passing as a senior for 2,714 yards and 28 touchdowns with three interceptions.

He had his redshirt junior season shortened by a back injury, then was granted a sixth season by the NCAA for 2019.

The Jaguars, who entered the draft with 12 selections, have two picks remaining Saturday – one in Round 6 (No. 206) and one in Round 7 (No. 223).

The Jaguars selected Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson (No. 9 overall) and Louisiana State defensive end/linebacker K'Lavon Chaisson (No. 20) in Round 1, Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (No. 42) in Round 2, Ohio State defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton (No. 73) in Round 3, St. John's offensive lineman Ben Bartch (No. 116) in Round 4, Michigan State cornerback Josiah Scott (No. 137) in Round 4, Miami linebacker Shaq Quarterman (No. 140) in Round 4, Auburn safety Daniel Thomas (No. 157) in Round 5 and Texas wide receiver Collin Johnson (No. 165) in Round 5.
