The Bucs' 2018 draft class is now all in the fold, with running back Ronald Jones, second-rounder from USC, signing his rookie deal Thursday.

Jones, who won't turn 21 until August after the Bucs go to training camp, was the last of Tampa Bay's eight draft picks to sign his rookie contract. According to the Times' Rick Stroud, the four-year deal is worth $7.07 million and includes a signing bonus of $3.22 million up front.

The Bucs wrapped up their three-day mandatory minicamp on Thursday, so players now have about six weeks before they're back at One Buc Place for the start of training camp in late July.

Jones was the first of three second-round picks for the Bucs this year, along with cornerbacks M.J. Stewart and Carlton Davis.
