On Thursday, both former Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd and former BYU running back Tyler Allgeier signed their rookie NFL contracts with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons, respectively.
That came one day before both players, who were 2022 NFL draft picks, joined their respective teams as they opened rookie minicamps on Friday.
That gets all three Utah ties taken in last month’s draft under contract, after former Southern Utah and Murray High offensive tackle Braxton Jones, a fifth-round choice by the Chicago Bears, signed his rookie deal last week.
