Round 7: Claybrooks the selection at No. 223


JACKSONVILLE – The final selection was about defense and special teams.

In a draft that began with a focus on defense and finished with an offensive flurry, the 12th – and likely final – selection of the Jaguars' '20 draft was a player who can return kicks.

Chris Claybrooks, a defensive back/return specialist from Memphis, became the Jaguars' 12th selection of the 2020 NFL Draft Saturday afternoon. The Jaguars chose Claybrooks with the 27th pick of the seventh round, the No. 223 selection overall.

Claybrooks (5-feet-9, 179 pounds), who will be listed as a return specialist, played two seasons at Memphis and returned 13 kickoffs for 338 yards and a touchdown in 2019. He had 42 tackles, including 33 solos, with 0.5 sacks and a forced fumble and two passes defensed this past season.

The Jaguars earlier in the draft 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, Texas wide receiver Collin Johnson (No. 165) in Round 5, Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton (No. 189) in Round 6 and Georgia Tech tight end Tyler Davis (No. 206) in Round 6.
