The Falcons officially signed first-round pick S Keanu Neal on Wednesday and now have their remaining draft class under contract.

Jones, 21, was selected with the No. 52 overall pick by the Falcons in the second round. He gained a lot of attention during the pre-draft process for his athleticism and gained comparisons to Buccaneers LB Lavonte David.
