JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed their second- and third-round draft picks.

Safety Johnathan Cyprien and cornerback Dwayne Gratz inked contracts Tuesday, leaving the team with four draft picks unsigned. Seventh-rounders Jeremy Harris and Demetrius McCray signed rookie deals last month.

Cyprien, the 33rd overall pick in April's draft, had 365 tackles, six forced fumbles and seven interceptions in four years at Florida International. He led the team with 93 tackles and four interceptions last season. He is expected to start as a rookie alongside veteran Dwight Lowery.

Gratz, the 64th overall selection, finished his college career with 189 tackles, 30 passes defensed and eight interceptions at Connecticut. He returned two of his eight picks for touchdowns. He also is a projected starter, working the entire offseason opposite Alan Ball.
