7 Players the Jacksonville Jaguars Should Target on Day 3

Day 2 of the 2013 NFL draft is in the books, and the Jacksonville Jaguars addressed their depleted secondary with both picks on the day.

The franchise drafted former Florida International strong safety John Cyprien with the No. 33 pick, and turned around in the next round and drafted former UConn cornerback Dwayne Gratz.

Both players are expected to compete for a starting role from Day 1 and they fit head coach Gus Bradley's scheme perfectly.

Cyprien is an in-the-box safety who has the range to get back in coverage, where he is aggressive. Gratz is among the strongest cornerbacks in the draft, which should allow him to thrive in press-coverage.

Counting first-round pick Luke Joeckel, the Jaguars have found three immediate starters who fill major areas of need. The team has upgraded itself at several key positions, which made Michael Schottey declare Jacksonville as the draft's biggest winner thus far.

The draft is far from over, however, as the majority of the rounds are still ahead of us.

General manager David Caldwell emphasized (per Action Sports 360) that the remainder of the draft will be used to find depth who can compete for starting roles.

There are still a lot of talented players available, so who should the Jaguars target on Day 3?
