Jaguars sign final 4 draft picks from 12-man rookie class
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars signed their final four draft picks Monday, including first-rounder K'Lavon Chaisson.
Fifth-round safety Daniel Thomas, sixth-round quarterback Jake Luton and seventh-round kick returner Chris Claybrooks also signed rookie deals.
Jacksonville now has its largest draft class - 12 players - under contract a day before rookies are scheduled to report for COVID-19 testing. Veterans are slated to report to camp next Tuesday.
Chaisson, a defensive end/linebacker and the 20th overall pick from national champion LSU, was one of two first-rounders for Jacksonville. Florida cornerback CJ Henderson was the ninth overall selection and signed his contract last week.
Under the NFL's rookie slotting system, Chaisson was scheduled to get a four-year deal worth $13.3 million that includes a $7.3 million signing bonus. The contract includes a team option for a fifth year.
