The Jaguars announced on their Facebook page today that sixth round cornerback from Florida State, Mike Harris, has signed his contract. While the terms of the deal were not released, the contract makes Harris the second of the six Jaguars selections to sign a deal, joining defensive end Andre Branch as the only rookie draft picks under contract.

Harris, 23, was a highly recruited junior college transfer who made an instant impact after joining Florida State in 2010, serving as the primary nickelback. In two seasons with the Seminoles, Harris finished with five interceptions and 99 tackles.

Head coach Mike Mularkey has discussed the possibility of Harris being used in "Wildcat" sets in the future due to his background as a quarterback and his versatility as an athlete.

With the signing of Harris the Jaguars have four remaining rookie draft picks not under contract including their first round pick, wide receiver Justin Blackmon.
