JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars addressed the secondary on the second day of the NFL draft, adding safety Andre Cisco of Syracuse.
Cisco (6-1, 216 pounds) was the second-rated safety on the ESPN draft board. He had just 11 tackles and an interception last season after missing much of the year with a torn ACL. Cisco has serious upside in the takeaway department. Cisco had 13 career interceptions for the Orange.
“Yeah, I’m a little over six months out of surgery. Right now, I’m working on doing field work, my normal positional workouts. So, I’m on the field and moving around and I feel pretty good. I’m working at 85% right now, so working through that,” he said. “Little tweaks here and there, so I would say that I’m still working through this journey. I’m not there yet, but I’m looking forward to starting training camp out and being 100% cleared.”
The second day of the draft is largely in the books for the Jaguars.
Barring any moves to trade up, the Jaguars won’t pick again until Saturday afternoon when the NFL draft resumes.
Jacksonville added depth with its pair of second-round picks, going with cornerback Tyson Campbell at No. 33 and offensive tackle Walker Little at 45.
They’ll enter Saturday’s action with five total selections.
Jacksonville picks twice in the fourth round (106 and 130); twice in the fifth (145 and 170) and once in the seventh (249).
