WR Jarred Haggins (Florida State) - Undrafted free agent

After the Detroit Lions held their rookie minicamp, they decided to sign a few additional undrafted free agents. Wide receiver Jarred Haggins was one of the players who earned a contract during the minicamp, and he joined the Lions on May 11.


Height: 5-foot-11 | Weight: 192 pounds


2010: 1 catch, 4 yards
2011: 11 catches, 94 yards
2012: 8 catches, 108 yards
2014: 1 catch, 18 yards


Random fact

Haggins played quarterback in high school before switching to wide receiver in college.

What the experts are saying

Florida State:

Fifth-year senior who served as an emotional leader for the Seminoles after returning in 2014 from a knee injury that sideline him for the whole 2013 season...served as a game captain for all 14 games...a backup receiver, he had one catch for 18 yards against Wake Forest...contributor on special teams…finished career with 21 receptions for 224 yards over 41 games.


Outlook for 2015

Haggins is a long shot to make the 53-man roster considering he only joined the Lions after their rookie minicamp. More than anything, that's a sign that he's probably just going to be a camp body. Then again, there have been camp bodies in the past who have come out of nowhere to stick around, so he should at least have a shot at earning a spot on the practice squad this summer.
