Tuesday, July 22, 2008

CLEVELAND —  The Browns have signed all five of their 2008 draft picks to four-year contracts.

Cleveland had no picks in the first three rounds of the April draft. They had to wait until the fourth round to select UNLV linebacker Beau Bell and Missouri tight end Martin Rucker with picks acquired in trades with Dallas.

Rucker was a consensus first team All-American last year, and Bell won the Mountain West Conference defensive player of the year award.

Also signed are Ahtyba Rubin, an Iowa State defensive lineman, Paul Hubbard _ a receiver at Wisconsin and Alex Hall, a defensive end from St. Augustine in North Carolina.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
