Undrafted WR Joshua Cephus Signs with Jaguars
1 month ago

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed UTEP WR Joshua Cephus as an undrafted free agent.

Joshua Cephus, younger brother of Quintez Cephus (just signed with Buffalo Bills), he played for UTEP.  He measures at 6’2″ and 185 pounds, he unfortunately did not get invited to the combine this year but did participate in the Shrine Bowl.  At his pro day he ran 4.62 40-yard dash and 32.5″ vertical jump.


His pro day isn’t eye popping, but his tape showed he was a quarterback’s best friend.  In the last three years he played his QB rating when targeted of 125.9, 116.4, and 122.5.  He averaged 80 catches, 940 yards receiving, and 7 touchdowns.  He produced great college numbers; some compare his play to last year’s rookie stud Puka Nacua.


Jaguars have signed Cephus as an undrafted free agent.  One of the main reasons Cephus did not hear his name called during the 2024 NFL Draft was due to his DWI back in 2022 and he was charged with a DWI in July 2023. In November 2023, he was given 15 months’ probation after pleading no contest.  As for fantasy, one can pick him up after rookie dynasty drafts considering he’s not even on Sleeper.  He will have his work cut out for him but look for him to make some noise in training camps.
