The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-round DE Travon Walker to a four-year contract, according to Adam Schefter.
The first pick of the draft also happens to be the first Jaguars rookie to ink their deal.
Walker, 21, was named to the freshman All-SEC team in 2019 and elected to enter the 2022 NFL Draft as a junior. The Jaguars used the No. 1 overall pick on him in the 2022 draft.
He’s projected to sign a four-year, $37,372,622 contract that includes a $24,360,089. There is also a fifth-year option for the team to pick up in 2025.
During his three-year college career, Walker recorded 61 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, one recovery and three pass deflections in 29 career games.
