Jaguars News: 3/30

12:20 AM ET – The Chicago Tribune reports East Carolina OT Willie Smith has ran through private workouts with the Jaguars, Bears, Panthers and Packers. Smith has been the starter at left tackle for the Pirates after bouncing around his first two seasons between defensive end, defensive tackle and tight end. At 6’5, 310 pound, he’s clearly a tackle now.

11:30 PM ET – Brock Huard, former Washington Huskies, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks quarterback, is now a co-host of a sports radio show in Seattle and reported from the Washington Pro Day. According to Huard, the Jaguars and Titans both met with Washington QB Jake Locker tonight after his pro day workout. Jaguars quarterback coach, Mike Sheppard, was on hand for the workout earlier in the day, so it’s most likely that Locker met with Sheppard.

The Jaguars also were among the 28 teams that attended the South Carolina Pro Day. It would’ve been surprising had the Jaguars not attended, considering they had scouts in attendance for at least three Gamecocks games in 2010.

Among the players that the Jaguars could be interested in at South Carolina is free safety Chris Culliver. He’s a mid-round safety that is ranked as the 5th best safety on NFLDraftScout.com. DE Cliff Matthews, TE Weslye Saunders and WR Tori Gurley are all other Gamecocks prospects that are likely to be drafted in the later rounds.

After the South Carolina Pro Day was the South Carolina State Pro Day in the same facility and according to Josh Buchanan, 27 scouts stuck around to observe. Considering the Jaguars’ love for small school prospects, it’s not unreasonale to think they would look in.
