DEKALB, Ill. - Northern Illinois University's Jason Onyebuagu has been invited to the Jacksonville Jaguars mini camp next weekend.

Onyebuagu was a stalwart of the Huskie offensive line, playing in all 51 games of his career at NIU, starting 39. He was one of three Northern Illinois offensive players to earn All-Mid-American Conference honors in 2009 helping lead the MAC's No. 1 rushing offense and redzone offense. NIU also led the league in sacks against, allowing 15 all season.

A native of Indianapolis, Ind., Onyebuagu hopes to sign a free agent contract with the NFL franchise. He will join another former player of NIU head coach Jerry Kill in Jacksonville, Fla. next weekend. Deji Karim, a running back of Southern Illinois who played for Kill in 2006 & 2007, was drafted by the Jaguars with the 11th pick in the sixth round.
