The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed cornerback Demetrius McCray to a four-

year contract through the 2016 season. McCray signed his four-year deal last Wednesday, May 22. He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the fourth pick of the seventh round (210th overall).
McCray was a two-time all-America cornerback at Appalachian State, earning second-teamhonors from the Associated Press as a senior last season and fourth-team recognition from Phil Steele Publications as a junior.
He tied for the Southern Conference lead with four interceptions in 2012, becoming the first Mountaineer cornerback to ever lead the league in interceptions twice (he also paced the SoCon with five INTs in 2011). McCray also led Appalachian with eight passes defended, ranked sixth on the squad with 55 tackles from his cornerback position and forced a fumble. He was one of 20 finalists for the 2012 Buck Buchanan Award, which is presented to the nation’s top defensive player in NCAA Division I FCS.
McCray finished his collegiate career with 10 interceptions, 26 passes defended, two forced fumbles and 123 total tackles.
