The Jaguars own three picks in Round Four, the opening round of Day Three of the NFL Draft: Picks 116, 137 and 140. 

Pick 140: Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami

The local boy is headed home.

Oakleaf High School grad and former Miami linebacker Shaq Quarterman is set to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In a four-year career at Miami, 356 tackles (including 46.5 TFL) and 12 sacks. Quarterman added 13 passes defended, five fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles, while serving as a team captain.

Pick 137: Josiah Scott, CB, Michigan State

With their second pick in Round Four, the Jaguars stay put once again and bolster their secondary with Michigan State's Josiah Scott. Scott is the second cornerback drafted by the Jaguars this weekend.

During his three-year career in Lansing, Scott tallied 95 tackles, six interceptions and 22 passes defended. Scott is measured at 5'9'', 185 lbs, and he primarily played nickel for the Spartans. The Hamilton, Ohio, native ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in February.

After trading both Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, depth at cornerback had become a concern for the Jaguars. The lone returning starter -- Tre Herndon -- became a full-time starter midway through the 2019 season after signing with the Jaguars in 2018 as an undrafted free agent. 

Pick 116: Ben Bartch, OL, Saint Johns

Dave Caldwell is a former Division III football player, a linebacker at perennial contender John Carroll.

He kicked off Day Three of the Jaguars' 2020 NFL Draft by selecting a fellow Division III product: Saint Johns University's Ben Bartch.

Don't be fooled by the small school name. Bartch was a stand-out at the Senior Bowl and was regarded by many as a Top-75 product entering this weekend's Draft. Bartch played offensive tackle in college but has the length and athletic ability to also kick inside to guard.

Ben Bartch is the first drafted player from Saint Johns University since 1974.

The Jaguars are scheduled to pick again later in the fourth round. This page will be updated to reflect those selections.
