JACKSONVILLE – It's official: The No. 27 overall selection is signed.

Devin Lloyd, the No. 27 overall selection by the Jaguars in the 2022 NFL Draft, has signed his rookie contract. The team announced the signing Thursday afternoon, a day before the first day of the team's rookie minicamp at TIAA Bank Field.

He was a first-team Associated Press All-America selection and the Pacific 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2021, and a first-team All-Pac 12 selection each of the past two seasons.
