Jaguars reach deal with LB Telvin Smith, only 4 draft picks left unsigned
MAY 27, 2014 5:11p ET
Smith, a fifth-round pick, signed Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not released. Smith might have gone higher in the draft, but he had a diluted urine sample at the NFL Combine and is now a part of the league's drug testing program.
Smith only started one season at Florida State, but the Jaguars coached the 6-foot-3, 218-pound linebacker at the Senior Bowl and liked how he performed.
Smith is expected to contend with another former FSU standout, Dekoda Watson, for the starting spot at weakside linebacker.
