The Jaguars have agreed to terms on a contract with third-round pick defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton, per Field Yates of ESPN. Hamilton will earn up to $4.82 million on the four-year deal.
After a breakout senior season, the former Ohio State Buckeye was a riser throughout the draft process. Hamilton racked up six sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss during his final season in Columbus. He then impressed at the Senior Bowl and had a strong showing at the Combine, putting up more bench press reps than any other participant.
Hamilton figures to have a prominent role for the Jaguars along the defensive interior, although he’ll likely start out as a rotational player behind veteran DT Al Woods.
Hamilton is the fourth Jaguars’ rookie to sign. He follows fourth-round pick LB Shaq Quarterman, fifth-rounder WR Collin Johnson, and sixth-rounder TE Tyler Davis. Eight of Jacksonville’s 2020 draft picks remain unsigned.
