Jaguars ink deal with second-round pick Maason Smith

On Thursday, the Jaguars made another signing from their draft picks. Maason Smith, who was their second-round pick, has signed a four-year rookie deal. This brings the total number of signed players to six out of their nine picks in the 2023 NFL draft. However, first-round wide receiver Brian Thomas Jr. is still among the unsigned players.

Smith and Thomas were both teammates at LSU, but Smith’s 2022 season was marred by a knee injury that kept him out of all but one game. Despite this setback, he made a strong return in the 2023 season, starting in 12 games and finishing with impressive stats including 28 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and two pass breakups.

In Jacksonville, Smith will be working to earn snaps on the defensive line behind Arik Armstead and Roy Robertson-Harris. His experience and skills will be valuable additions to the Jaguars’ defense as they look to improve their performance in the upcoming season.
