Tom Coughlin gushed at his selection of Penn State safety James Boyd.
"I was impressed by his ability to play zone coverage in the middle of the field. I was very impressed by his all-around ability. He is a very sure tackler. I think he'll become a stronger play; put a little weight on. He was a very important need for our team, but he was the best player available, as well," Coughlin said.
Boyd could become the Jaguars' free safety of the future, what with veteran Carnell Lake about to turn 34 and occupying a significant portion of the Jaguars' salary cap. The Jaguars were intent on addressing their need at free safety before the first day of the draft was complete.
