The Pick Is In: Jaguars Select Cornerback Jarrian Jones No. 96 Overall in the 2024 NFL Draft


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars stayed defensive late Friday.

They did so by addressing the secondary by focusing on the cornerback position.

He had five career pass interceptions.

Jones became the seventh Florida State player selected by the Jaguars in the NFL Draft, the first since cornerback Jalen Ramsey (Round 1, 2016).

The Jaguars hold six more selections in the '24 draft: Round 4 (No. 114 overall), Round 4 (No. 116 overall), Round 5 (No. 153 overall), Round 5 (No. 167 overall), Round 6 (No. 212 overall) and Round 7 (No. 236 overall).
