Second-round selection Darius Slay also was signed. The Mississippi State cornerback was taken with the fourth pick of the second round.

They also signed Kentucky offensive guard Larry Warford, who was taken in the third round.

Other players signed are South Carolina defensive end Devin Taylor, Appalachian State punter Sam Martin, Virginia Tech wide receiver Corey Fuller, Notre Dame running back Theo Riddick, Alabama tight end Michael Williams and Florida A&M linebacker Brandon Hepburn.
