With the twenty-eigth pick in the NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected tight end Marcedes Lewis of Maryland. The Jaguars were believed to be interested in linebacker DeMeco Ryans, and a tight end was a stretch for them.

Scouting Information on Williams: Lewis is considered to be the second best tight end in the draft behind Maryland star Vernon Davis. Lewis, at 6-6 265 pounds, won the 2005 John Mackey award for the nations best tight end. Lewis led UCLA with 59 receptions for 741 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Lewis is the classic tweener. He's not the best blocker, but is able to blow past linebackers and safties with his speed. Has a tendency to make the great catch, but drop the easy ones. He will mainly be used as a recieving tight end and occassional slot receiver.

Lewis is among the lines of Jeremy Shockey or Kellen Winslow Jr. (not as good as those two) but a versatile hybrid who can make plays off of the line of scrimmage or split out wide.
