The final Las Vegas Raiders rookie has been signed.
According to a press release from the team, fourth-round pick Jakorian Bennett has signed with the team. The cornerback out of Maryland was selected with the 104th overall pick.
The terms of the deal were not released by the team. Earlier in the week, the team announced it had signed second-round pick Michael Mayer, officially locking their entire draft class under contract.
“At Maryland, Bennett was a two-time honorable mention All-Big Ten Conference (2021-22) and finished with 69 tackles (55 solo), 4.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions and 26 passes defended,” the team said in its press release. “In 2022, he led Maryland and ranked tied for third in the Big Ten in passes defensed (11) after ranking first among all Power-5 defensive backs in 2021 with 16 passes defended.”
