FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with safety Keanu Neal, the team’s first-round pick from Florida.

Neal, the No. 17 overall pick in last week’s NFL draft, is the only first-round pick to agree to terms thus far. Terms of the deal, which includes an option for a fifth season, were not immediately available.

Neal had 96 tackles and one interception as a junior in 2015. He had three interceptions in 2014.

The Falcons’ six draft picks and undrafted rookies will report on Thursday for a rookie mini-camp on Friday and Saturday. Neal is expected to contend for a starting job as a rookie.
