2014 NFL Draft: Jaguars select Bowanko in Round 6

Posted May 10, 2014

Jaguars select Virginia C Luke Bowanko in sixth round of 2014 NFL Draft.


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars took a center in the 2014 NFL Draft after all.

The Jaguars addressed the position left uncertain by the retirement of longtime center Brad Meester late in the day Saturday, using the 29th selection of the sixth round – the 205th selection overall – on University of Virginia center Luke Bowanko.

The Jaguars earlier on Saturday used their fourth-round selection – the No. 114 selection overall – on Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin. They used their first fifth-round selection – the No. 144 selection overall – on Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith.

They then used their second fifth-round selection – the No. 159 selection overall – on University of Arkansas defensive end Chris Smith. The selection of Chris Smith marked the fourth consecutive selection of a player who played at the January Senior Bowl.

The Jaguars’ coaching staff worked that game.

The Jaguars on Thursday used the No. 3 overall selection to select Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles, then used three selections on offensive players Friday night.

The Jaguars selected Southern California wide receiver Marqise Lee with the seventh selection of the second round – the No. 39 overall – then traded up into the second round to select Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson. The Jaguars traded Selections No. 70 and No. 150 – third and fifth-round selections, respectively – in this year’s draft to the San Francisco 49ers for the 61st selection that they used to select Robinson.

The Jaguars then traded up again late Friday night, selecting Miami offensive guard Brandon Linder. The Jaguars traded fourth- and sixth-round selections in this year’s draft to the Patriots. Those were the 105th and 179th selections overall.

The Jaguars have one selection remaining Saturday in the seventh round (No. 222). The first fifth-round selection was the Jaguars’ original selection and the second came in a trade last fall with the Baltimore Ravens for offensive tackle Eugene Monroe.

The sixth-round selection came in trade this offseason for quarterback Blaine Gabbert and the seventh-round selection was their original selection.
