Jacksonville Jaguars work out Ryan Swope, Uzoma Nwachukwu

The Jacksonville Jaguars worked out a pair of Texas A&M Aggies standouts in mid-round wide receiver Ryan Swope, who was one of the best receivers in the Big 12 during his career in College Station, and fellow- but less-heralded- wide receiver Uzoma Nwachukwu. The interesting thing is that this news doesn’t come to us from a beat writer or a draft analyst, but from a teammate of Swope’s and Nwachukwu’s. A&M right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi tweeted, “Hope (Nwachukwu) n (Swope) do work for the Jaguars today!” This tweet came on Friday, so both workouts have already passed.

With Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon locked in on the outside, it seems like the Jaguars are going to press for a slot receiver. Their situation at receiver is solid, and it is one of the strengths of this roster. The Jags did re-sign Jordan Shipley, but they might be  looking for another guy to add into the mix in the middle or later rounds.

Nwachukwu bounced back last season after a subpar 2011 campaign, and he cut down on a lot of silly errors and drops in 2012. He was much more reliable for freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel than for “veteran” signal-caller Ryan Tannehill, and he has impressed some scouts in the pre-draft process. I will be interested in hearing how he performed for the Jaguars, since not much is known about this A&M wideout.

Swope is an interesting one, because concussion concerns have slid his draft stock. Even so, he runs a forty time below 4.5 and should be selected in the fourth round. After an excellent Combine and that aforementioned forty time, many are lauding Swope. However, I bet teams are really cautious about his concussion history, and the Jaguars almost certainly took a close look at him.
