The Jaguars have signed the second of their six draft picks.
Cornerback Mike Harris agreed to a four-year contract with the team. The sixth-round pick out of Florida State joins defensive end Andre Branch as the only members of the Jaguars draft class to sign their deals.
Harris played almost exclusively in the slot while at Florida State and the Jaguars see him playing a similar role in their sub packages. He might not earn a spot in them right away, so he’ll have to earn his keep on special teams. He did a lot of that in Tallahassee as well so you should probably expect to see Harris covering a lot of kicks for the Jags this season.
With Harris in the fold, the Jaguars decided to cut ties with veteran cornerback Morgan Trent. Trent entered the league as a sixth-round pick of the Bengals in 2009 and joined the Jags last season after stints with both Cincinnati and Indianapolis. The Jaguars also announced that they have signed rookie free agent cornerback/kick returner Dontrell Johnson. Johnson was a member of the team for 11 days earlier this month and obviously showed someone enough to warrant a second look.
