The Jaguars loaded up on defensive players in the draft by using six of their seven picks on that side of the ball.

They announced a group of undrafted free agent signings on Sunday that was more balanced. The team has signed nine undrafted rookies and five of them play on the offensive side of the ball.

One of those additions is quarterback Max Wittek of Hawaii, who signs with the team a day after they drafted Brandon Allen in the sixth round. With Chad Henne back for another year backing up Blake Bortles, there’s likely only going to be room for one of those two in Jacksonville once the summer comes to an end. Wittek spent one year in Hawaii after transferring from USC, where he was beaten out by Browns third-round pick Cody Kessler.

The Jaguars also signed South Alabama tight end Braedon Bowman, Southern Miss tackle Rashod Hill, Louisiana-Lafayette wide receiver Jamal Robinson and San Diego State tackle Pearce Slater on the offensive side of the ball. Minnesota cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Ole Miss cornerback Mike Hilton and Michigan safety Jarrod Wilson were added on defense and Texas kicker Jaden Oberkrom joins the specialists.
