First overall pick Travon Walker has agreed to terms on his rookie contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, sources told NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.

Walker will receive a fully guaranteed four-year deal worth just over $37 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The contract will also include a standard fifth-year option.

The Georgia product is the Jaguars’ second consecutive No. 1 pick after the club selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence in last year’s draft.

The Jaguars have finished last in the AFC South in each of the past four seasons and also hold a 4-29 record since 2020. The organization hired former Super Bowl champion Doug Pederson as its head coach this offseason.
