JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars continued to shore up their depleted secondary by selecting Florida safety Josh Evans in the sixth round of the NFL draft.


The Jaguars used the first pick of the sixth round to get Evans, who led the Gators with 83 tackles last season.


He was the third defensive back selected by the Jaguars in the three-day draft, joining second-round safety Johnathan Cyprien and third-round cornerback Dwayne Gratz.


Jacksonville is trying to replace most of its secondary from last season. The team parted ways with its top four cornerbacks - Derek Cox, Rashean Mathis, Aaron Ross and Will Middleton - as well as strong safety Dawan Landry. The only returning starter is Dwight Lowery, but Evans likely will compete with Lowery and Chris Prosinski for a starting spot.
