The Jaguars’ entire draft class is in the books. On Wednesday, the Jaguars announced the signing of third-round linebacker Quincy Williams, the club’s last straggler in the 2019 group.
Williams, the brother of third-overall pick Quinnen Williams, was a surprise pick in the third round. The Murray State linebacker wasn’t among the 400 players scouted by NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah, nor was he on the list of 730 prospects compiled by The Athletic’s Arif Hasan. He wasn’t invited to the Combine and Murray State didn’t have a Pro Day, so Williams assumed he was going to go undrafted.
“For me coming from a small school and didn’t get a combine invite, yeah, I kind of did,” Williams said. “Then I had to go to Pro Day somewhere else, so most people thought I was a safety or a smaller linebacker, so yeah it was a thought in my mind. But then I know my abilities, and I believe in myself.”
