The Jaguars signed sixth-round pick Deji Karim on Friday, the team announced.

Karim, the 180th overall pick, will look to make the roster as a backup running back.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that the 5-8, 209-pound Southern Illinois product is a "functional runner who takes what a defense gives him but has few standout traits and could struggle to translate his production at the pro level."
