Four down, two to go.
After today's signings of fourth round pick Dwight Lowery and fifth rounder Erik Ainge, only first round picks Vernon Gholston and Dustin Keller remain unsigned.
Lowery, a ballhawking cornerback from San Jose State, is expected to immediately compete in the defensive back rotation. Darrelle Revis is entrenched on one side of the field, while Lowery has an outside chance to compete with Justin Miller and David Barrett on the other side. More likely, he'll start as a dime back with Miller starting across from Revis.
Ainge is a productive quarterback from Tennessee. He is big and productive in the SEC, with a pretty strong and accurate arm. So why did he slip to round five? Questions about his durability and consistency are rampant, and he's not particularly mobile. He's an intriguing option down the line at quarterback because he has all the physical tools necessary in a quarterback.
Both contracts are for four years with undisclosed salaries.
In other news, the Jets signed undrafted free agent Kyle DeVan, a 6-2, 306-pound center from Oregon State. The Redskins had originally signed him on May 1 after the draft. Training camp fodder, but it never hurts to bring in guys and see what they can offer.
