JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars finished signing their '20 draft class Monday.

Linebacker/defensive end K'Lavon Chaisson, safety Daniel Thomas, quarterback Jake Luton and cornerback Chris Claybrooks – the last remaining unsigned players in the Jaguars' 2020 NFL Draft class – all have signed their rookie contracts. The team announced the signings Monday evening.

A quick look at the four signings:

He served as team captain in 2019 and earned All-Southeastern Conference first-team honors, playing 26 games with 17 starts and totaled 92 tackles, including 19.0 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks.

He played in 51 games at Auburn, totaling 199 tackles with 13 passes defensed and five interceptions. He registered 74 tackles with a career-high 5.5 tackles for loss and a pass defensed in 2019.

*Luton (6-6, 224), who played collegiately at Oregon State, was selected in Round 6 with the No. 189 overall selection. A redshirt senior who spent six years in college, he began his career at Idaho before transferring first to Ventura Community College and finally Oregon State.
