JACKSONVILLE - The Jaguars went offense late in the draft.

With their last selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Jaguars made a move to improve their depth and talent at wide receiver.

Jalen Camp, a wide receiver from Georgia Tech, was the No. 209 overall selection by the Jaguars in the '21 draft. Camp was the No. 25 selection of Round 6, and the Jaguars had no seventh-round selections at the time of the Camp selection.

Camp (6-feet-2, 220 pounds), who started 24 of 48 games played at Georgia Tech, led the team in 2020 with 29 receptions for 439 yards and four touchdowns. He finished his career with 46 receptions for 786 yards and five touchdowns.

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.

The Jaguars selected Ohio State tight end Luke Farrell No. 145 overall.
