NAPA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have signed first-round draft pick Gareon Conley on the eve of their first training camp practice.

Conley signed his contract Friday night and is expected to take part in practice Saturday. Oakland now has all of its draft picks under contract.

Conley was taken 24th overall in April. He had six interceptions and 15 passes defensed in 42 games at Ohio State and is being counted on to bolster a secondary that gave up an NFL-worst 61 pass plays of at least 20 yards.

Conley’s contract was complicated by the fact that a 23-year-old woman told Cleveland police that Conley raped her in a hotel bathroom on April 9. Conley has cooperated with authorities and no charges have been filed.
