He joins third-round draft pick, Cincinnati receiver-returner Tre Tucker, fourth-round pick, Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell and fifth-round pick, safety Christopher Smith, sixth-round pick, Florida linebacker Amari Burney. and seventh-round pick, defensive tackle Nesta Jade Silvera of Arizona State.
Their three remaining picks to sign are second-round pick tight end Michael Mayer of Notre Dame, third-round pick, defensive tackle Byron Young of Alabama and fourth-round pick, cornerback Jakorian Bennett of Maryland.
