The Jacksonville Jaguars continued to shore up their depleted secondary by selecting New Mexico State cornerback Jeremy Harris in the seventh round of the NFL draft.

The Jaguars used the second pick of the seventh round (No. 208 overall) to get Harris, who played college ball for current Jaguars secondary coach DeWayne Walker.

The 6-foot-2 Harris is the fourth defensive back selected by the Jaguars in the three-day draft, joining second-round safety Johnathan Cyprien, third-round cornerback Dwayne Gratz and sixth-round cornerback Josh Evans.

Jacksonville is trying to replace most of its secondary from last season. The team parted ways with its top four cornerbacks - Derek Cox, Rashean Mathis, Aaron Ross and Will Middleton - as well as strong safety Dawan Landry. The only returning starter is Dwight Lowery.
