Packers sign first-round draftee Randall

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday completed signing their 2015 draft class by getting top pick Damarious Randall in the fold.

Randall, a defensive back selected No. 30 overall in this year's draft, was one of just four first-round picks left unsigned. Still remaining are Ereck Flowers (New York Giants, No. 9 overall), Cedric Ogbuehi (Bengals, No. 21) and Malcom Brown (Patriots, No. 32).

According to the website OvertheCap.com, Randall is expected to have signed a four-year contract worth $7,915,728, including a signing bonus of $4,016,892.

Randall, 5-foot-11, 196 pounds, played safety at Arizona State but will line up as a cornerback for the Packers. As a senior he had 106 tackles (85 solo), 9.5 tackles for loss, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Randall will compete for the No. 3 cornerback job on Green Bay's depth chart this season, with Sam Shields and Casey Hayward as the two very likely starting outside cornerbacks.
