The Jaguars’ second of two first-round picks,, running back Travis Etienne, has agreed to terms with the team, according to multiple reports.

Etienne agreed to a four-year deal worth a reported $12.89 million. He’ll get more than half of that as a signing bonus. All NFL first-round picks are allowed to sign four-year deals with a fifth-year team option.

Etienne was selected with the 25th pick of the draft. The selection was a surprise for some, who expected the Jaguars to bolster the defensive line after selecting Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick. As a start at Clemson, Etienne totaled over 6,100 scrimmage yards and averaged a remarkable 7.2 yards per carry. He scored 28 touchdowns on offense, including 70 rushing touchdowns. As a freshman, he earned third-team All-ACC honors and was a first-team pick in his final three seasons.

The move leaves the Jaguars two second-round picks, Tyson Campbell and Walker Little as the only unsigned players from the Jaguars draft class.

Jaguars’ rookies report to camp Tuesday. Veterans the following week.
