Jacksonville--Just hours before reporting to his first NFL training camp, Albany's Daryl Smith agreed to a four year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars late Thursday night. Terms of Smith's first professional contract were not available, but he was expected to sign the deal when he reported to camp at 5 o'clock Friday evening.
Smith, the former Dougherty High and Georgia Tech star was the 39th overall selection in the draft this past spring. The 6-2, 234 pound linebacker started 44 of his 46 career games at Tech and finished his career with 383 total tackles, 15 sacks, 3 interceptions and three forced fumbles.
Daryl Smith was one of five Jaguars to come to terms with the team in the past 24 hours. The others were running back Greg Jones, defensive end Jorge Cordova and wide receiver's Ernest Wiliford and Reggie Williams, the team's top pick.
