BETHLEHEM, PA. (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with nine of their 11 draft picks, giving them each four-year deals.

All but first-round pick Danny Watkins and a seventh rounder, Greg Lloyd, agreed to contracts on Wednesday, when players were due to report to training camp.

Watkins, 26, was the oldest player selected in the first round since 1980. He’s projected to start on the offensive line.

Among the players who’ve agreed on deals are defensive backs Jaiquawn Jarrett and Curtis Marsh, linebackers Casey Matthews and Brian Rolle, offensive linemen Julian Vandervelde and Jason Kelce, kicker Alex Henery and running back Dion Lewis.

Those eight were announced earlier in the day, and at 8:54 p.m. EST, fullback Stanley Havili joined that group as well, agreeing to a similar four-year contract.

The Eagles open the preseason on Aug. 11 at home vs. Baltimore. They’ll begin the regular season on Sept. 11, at St. Louis.
