Storm Johnson has signed his rookie contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Johnson was a seventh round selection of the team in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Johnson originally played at the University of Miami before transferring to the University of Central Florida, where he played alongside the Jaguars first round pick, quarterback Blake Bortles. He becomes the second draft pick to sign his rookie deal with the team thus far, following sixth round pick Luke Bowanko. Bowanko, a center from Virginia, signed his rookie deal on Monday. The Jaguars now have seven draft picks left to sign.

The Jaguars already had a power back in free agent signee Toby Gerhart, and a speed back in Denard Robinson, who the club drafted last year. Johnson is thought to be a nice combination of the two, and is expected to see more playing time than veteran Jordan Todman.
