Jacksonville Jaguars Ink Another Draft Pick

As reported earlier by Aaron Wilson of the National Football post, the Jacksonville Jaguars signed their 5th draft pick this afternoon, 6th round runningback Deji Karim.

According to sources, Karim signed a 4-year $1.9 million dollar deal, with roughly $110,000 in signing bonus. There is a 4th year escalator in Karim's contract however, that can significantly increase the value of his deal.

This leaves five of Jacksonville's six draft picks currently under contract, leaving only the 10th overall pick, defensive tackle Tyson Alualu, left to sign with the club. It should be expected that Alualu will sign relatively close to training camp or a few days after it occurs.

Just for the sake of guessing, looking at some contract in the range Alualu was picked, his deal should be worth around $19 million guaranteed. The 10th overall selection last year, wide receiver Michael Crabtree, signed a deal for $17 million guaranteed that likely escalates up to $19 million guaranteed. Defensive tackle B.J. Raji of the Green Bay Packers was the 9th overall selection and signed for roughly $18 million guaranteed. If the contract increases at the typical rate, Alualu's deal will likely fall in between $18 and $20 million guaranteed.
