Jaguars sign third draft pick


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have a bit of a streak going after signing a draft pick for the third consecutive day.

Cornerback Aaron Colvin, the team's fourth-round pick, signed his contract Wednesday afternoon. He receives a $453,153 signing bonus and the four-year deal is worth $2,673,152.

UPDATE: The Jaguars signed fifth-round pick Chris Smith on Wednesday as well. The former Arkansas defensive end agreed to a four-year deal worth $2,407,252 with a signing bonus of $187,252. Smith is projected to play the leo spot, which is a hybrid end/linebacker, but enters training camp fourth on the depth chart behind Chris Clemons, Jason Babin and Andre Branch.

The Jaguars signed sixth-round pick Luke Bowanko on Monday and seventh-round pick Storm Johnson on Tuesday.

Colvin is probably going to begin the season on the PUP list because he suffered a torn right ACL on the second day of Senior Bowl practices. He's likely not going to be cleared for full contact until later in training camp and GM David Caldwell is planning on Colvin getting on the field in the second half of the season, though how much depends on his grasp of the defense.

The 6-foot, 192-pound Colvin fits the Jaguars' profile for defensive backs and should become the eventual starter opposite Dwayne Gratz.
