Jaguars sign seventh-round pick Demetrius McCray


The Jaguars had two seventh-round picks last month and used them both on cornerbacks,

Now they have both of them under contract. Jeremy Harris signed earlier this week and the team announced Wednesday that Demetrius McCray has agreed to a contract as well.

McCray led the Southern Conference in interceptions in each of the last two seasons at Appalachian State and earned second-team All-America honors in the Football Championship Subdivision last season. Whether those ballhawking skills will translate into significant playing time on defense as a rookie is something to be determined during camp, but it’s pretty clear that the Jags want to overhaul their secondary.

The team signed Marcus Trufant and Alan Ball before drafting two safeties and cornerback Dwayne Gratz to go with the two seventh-round corners, leaving plenty of spots on their depth chart up for grabs between now and the start of the regular season.
