Official: Etienne, Campbell and Little sign rookie contracts


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' rookie class is officially signed.

Running back Travis Etienne Jr., the second of the Jaguars' two first-round selections in the 2021 NFL Draft, has signed his rookie contract – as have second-round cornerback Tyson Campbell and second-round offensive tackle Walker Little.

The Jaguars announced all three signings early Tuesday morning. All nine players in the Jaguars' '21 draft class now have signed with the team.

The Jaguars signed quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Etienne's teammate at Clemson University and the No. 1 overall selection in the '21 draft, to his rookie contract on July 5.

Etienne, the No. 25 overall selection in the '21 draft, was a two-time consensus All-America selection and a three-time first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection – and rushed for 4,952 yards and 70 touchdowns on 686 career carries in four seasons at Clemson. He caught 102 career passes for 1,155 yards and eight touchdowns, and he was the ACC Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019.

He is the career rushing yards leader in the ACC, and also holds career ACC records for touchdowns rushing, touchdowns scored (78), all-time yards from scrimmage (6,107). He holds the NCAA record for all-time career games with a touchdown with 46.

Campbell, who played at Georgia, was the first selection of Round 2 – the No. 33 selection overall. Campbell started 30 games in three seasons for the Bulldogs with an interception and 10 passes defensed. He also registered 99 career tackles and he had five passes defensed with an interception as a junior this past season.

Little, who played at Stanford, was the No. 45 selection overall. He started 14 games, sustaining a season-ending knee injury in Week 1 of the 2019 season and opting out of the 2020 season because of COVID-19. He earned All-Pac 12 first-team honors as a sophomore in 2018 while starting 13 games. 

The Jaguars previously also signed wide receiver Jalen Camp (Round 6, No. 209, Georgia Tech), defensive end Jordan Smith (Round 4, No. 121, Alabama-Birmingham), tight end Luke Farrell (Round 5, No. 145, Ohio State), safety Andre Cisco (Round 3, No. 65, Syracuse), defensive tackle Jay Tufele (Round 4, No. 106, Southern California).
