JACKSONVILLE - The Jaguars appear just about done for the weekend.

With one selection remaining after an early Saturday trade, the Jaguars used what may be their second-to-last selection of the 2021 NFL Draft on a position of need.

Luke Farrell, a tight end from Ohio State University, was the No. 145 overall in 2021 NFL Draft by the Jaguars Saturday. He was the first selection of Round 5.

Farrell (6-feet-6, 258 pounds), a four-time Big 10 All-Academic selection, caught 34 career passes for the Buckeyes for 380 yards and four touchdowns. He started 32 of 44 games played.

The Jaguars on Thursday selected Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence No. 1 overall and Clemson running back Travis Etienne No. 25 overall -- selecting Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell No. 33 overall, Stanford offensive tackle Walker Little No. 45 overall on Friday and Syracuse safety Andre Cisco No. 65 overall Friday.

They selected Southern California defensive tackle Jay Tufele No. 106 overall Saturday and traded up from No. 130 to No. 121 to select Alabama-Birmingham edge rusher Jordan Smith; the Jaguars obtained the No. 209 overall selection and sent the No. 170 and No. 249 selections to the Los Angeles Rams in the trade.

They hold one more selection in the '21 draft: No. 209 overall in Round 7.
