JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Florida State receiver Rashad Greene in the fifth round of the NFL draft.
The Jaguars chose Greene with the 139th overall pick, giving them a slot receiver to play alongside projected starters Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. Jacksonville drafted Lee and Robinson in the second round last year and is counting on them developing into consistent playmakers for quarterback Blake Bortles.
The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Greene caught 99 passes for 1,365 yards and seven touchdowns for the Seminoles last season. He finished his college career with 270 receptions and 29 touchdowns, improving his numbers every year. He also has experience returning punts.
Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell vowed to get more playmakers for Bortles, and Greene is the latest addition.
