Joe Banyard â€” a former Sweetwater High School athlete who spent his last two collegiate seasons as a star running back at the University of Texas-El Paso â€” is scheduled to be in Jacksonville, Fla. today to begin a three-day NFL rookie minicamp after signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent.
Banyard is one of the teamâ€™s 17 undrafted rookie free agents, which include LSU defensive end Kendrick Adams, Ohio State center Mike Brewster and Virginia Tech receiver Jarrett Boykin.
