JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville's week at the Senior Bowl paid dividends in the NFL draft.
The Jaguars used three consecutive picks Saturday on defensive players they spent a week with in Mobile, Alabama.
They chose Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin in the fourth round (No. 114 overall), and added Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith (No. 144) and Arkansas defensive end Chris Smith (No. 159) in the fifth.
Jacksonville also selected Virginia center Luke Bowanko in the sixth and UCF running back Storm Johnson in the seventh. Bowanko and Johnson didn't attend the Senior Bowl, but the other three did. And they made an impression on the Jaguars - despite flaws.
Colvin is recovering from a knee injury. Telvin Smith failed a drug test. Chris Smith is considered a tweener.
