Draft season is among us, despite it’s only Week 11 in the NFL. The end of the college football season is near, and scouting reports, mock drafts, and constan speculation time is in full gear.

Here at Locked On Jaguars, we have already published some mock drafts, offseason simulations, and player profiles for the Jacksonville Jaguars. With enough information worth noting, we are introducing a new post, tracking where the Jaguars send their scouting staff throughout the 2018 college season to live-scout specific teams and players.

We don’t have exact info as to who the team is watching specifically, but from a mix of Locked On Jaguars sources and reports, it’s easy enough to compile where the scouts frequent and hypothesize who the team is interested. Let’s get to it, breaking down school visits by week. Prospects listed from each school are based on Jaguars team/need and prospect rankings via The Draft Network LLC.

This blog will be updated weekly as more visits occur. (#) = Number of visits for each school. Schools the Jaguars have watched more than once will have their noteworthy prospects listed under their latest game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have apparently fined LB Telvin Smith for missing three days of mandatory minicamp. This amount, according to Telvin Smith on Instagram, was for a total of $88,650. Telvin Smith decided to leave the game of football for a year last month and has not shown up to any team activities since the season ended in January.

Smith stated in his Instagram post “Oh y’all  thght [sic] it was a game!!! You say you wanna sit & get ya life right. . . they say nah […] you pay me!!!” also stating “It’s still love!!”

The Jaguars have every right to fine Smith under the current CBA signed in 2011 regarding mandatory participation in team activities. Smith has not yet informed the Jaguars officially of his intentions for the 2019 season, thus he is still considered a part of the team and on the 90-man roster.

It is not yet known whether or not the team has opted to fine DE Yannick Ngakoue who was also missing from mandatory minicamp last week as he resolves his contract with the team.

REPORT: Jaguars sign WR Tre McBride and DT Kalani Vakameilao

Demetrius Harvey



The Jacksonville Jaguars announced today the signings of WR Tre McBride and Rookie DT Kalani Vakameilalo. Both players had a tryout during yesterday’s minicamp practice. They have waived LB Nick DeLuca and LS Christian Kuntz to make room.

McBride has played for the Tennesee Titans, Chicago Bears, and the New York Jets during his time in the NFL. In 2017 he hauled in eight receptions for 144 yards. His lone touchdown came in 2015 with the Tennesee Titans. The Jaguars currently have 12 WRs on the roster including McBride. They will enter training camp for a battle for possibly five or six spots. Currently, it would be a surprise if McBride makes the team.

Vakameilao went undrafted out of Oregon State where he posted 75 tackles, including 13.5 tackles for loss.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially wrapped up their 2019 NFL Draft class with the signing of third-round pick Quincy Williams the team has announced today. Williams played college football at Murray State as a linebacker and safety and will be playing LB with the Jaguars.

Following the departure of WLB Telvin Smith, the Jaguars needed to find a replacement, and they hope Williams can eventually develop into that role. During OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Williams has taken some first-team reps at LB along with LB Ramik Wilson. The WLB battle will be one to watch during training camp later this summer.

Williams spoke briefly following the signing of his contract stating, “I’ve been dreaming on this and waiting on this moment my whole life,” Williams said. “I’m just here to answer the question of, ‘Who is Quincy Williams?’”
