Jags sign third-round pick Brandon Linder

The list of unsigned draft picks continues to get smaller and smaller.

Guard Brandon Linder is the latest to agree to a contract. The Jaguars announced Monday that the third-round pick has agreed to a four-year deal with the team.

The Jaguars traded back into the thrid round to select Linder during the draft, which is a good sign of how interested they were in adding him to their roster. Given the unsettled situation at guard across from left guard Zane Beadles, Linder, who played both right guard and right tackle at Miami, could find his way into the starting lineup on the right side as a rookie.

Jacksonville’s top three picks from last month — quarterback Blake Bortles, wide receiver Marqise Lee and wide receiver Allen Robinson — remain unsigned.

    Linder has shown enough in OTAs to warrant a contract, but they are still undecided about the other three.

    I’d hope regardless of what he showed in ota’s they would sign him…you don’t cut 3rd round picks before training camp.

    He was not in on a tryout basis, he’s a relatively high draft pick…and a good one!

    GG – do you have really big shoes, bright red hair and a bright red nose?

    Still can’t believe we got a 6th rd pick for gabby right before he was going to get cut….. Thanks harbaugh!

    This is wild. Linder is my last name too and it’s a very unusual last name. I wonder if I should start the research to see if he’s my long-lost cousin!!!!!
