Draft Scout Demetrius McCray News
05/22/13 - DB Demetrius McCray signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who now have two of their eight draft picks under contract. Terms were not disclosed.
McCray, a seventh-round pick, was the fifth player selected by the Jaguars in April who will play in the secondary, an area in which the team parted ways with four of its top six players from their 2012 unit. McCray is like the other four selections, a physical player who hits hard and has good coverage skills.
McCray, 6-feet, 185 pounds, was a four-year letterman at Appalachian State, where he was a two-time All-Southern Conference selection. He finished his career with 10 interceptions along with 123 tackles (83 solo), 26 passes defensed and two forced fumbles.
McCray finished with a career-high 55 tackles and eight passes defensed as a senior and was a Buck Buchanan Award finalist for the NCAA Division I FCS Defensive Player of the Year.
