Former Auburn safety Jamien Sherwood is set to become the first draft pick to sign an NFL deal on Wednesday, ESPN reported.
Sherwood, taken in the fifth round by the New York Jets, will sign a four-year deal worth $3.83 million according to the report, citing agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Sherwood finished his junior season at Auburn with 75 tackles, three passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 11 games.
Despite his experience at safety in college, the Jets introduced Sherwood as a linebacker when drafting him.
