The Jaguars have signed a third member of their draft class.

Jacksonville selected Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook with the 110th overall pick in this year's NFL Draft.

Westbrook signed a four-year deal on Tuesday.


The fourth-round selection will compete with Rashad Greene, Bryan Walters, Arrelious Benn and others for playing time at wide receiver.

A Biletnikoff Award-winner, Westbrook had 80 receptions for 1,524 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns this past season. Many draft pundits projected his on-the-field talent as first or second-round quality.

However, Westbrook has had some off-the-field issues. He was charged in two domestic violence incidents during his college career, but both charges were dropped.

Jaguars General Manager Dave Caldwell said the team did extensive research on Westbrook's character before the draft. He called Westbrook a "value pick."

After being selected by the Jaguars, Westbrook acknowledged that the team made him aware that he would be watched closely when it comes to off-the-field issues.

Head Coach Doug Marrone recently said that Westbrook would be eased into his role as a wide receiver this season. He will also compete for the punter return job.

Westbrook is off to a good start with the team, as first-round pick Leonard Fournette has said the two of them will stay in Jacksonville this offseason to learn the playbook.

Fournette and Westbrook will be the team's representatives at the annual NFL Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles later this month.

Westbrook joins seventh-round picks, cornerback Jalen Myrick and fullback Marquez Williams, as draft class members who have signed with the Jaguars.

Fournette, second-round pick Cam Robinson, third-round pick Dawuane Smoot and fourth-round pick Blair Brown have yet to sign their rookie deals.
