The Oakland Raiders have signed second-round draft offensive tackle Menelik Watson, the team announced.

Now, only first-round cornerback D.J. Hayden has yet to agree to terms.

The Raiders have signed nine of 10 draft picks.

Watson is an interesting player.

He's a native of Manchester, England who played one season of football at Florida State after transferring from Saddleback Junior College in Mission Viejo, Calif, but began as a basketball player at Marist College in New York before switching sports.

The long-armed 6-foot-5, 315-pounder formed an excellent tandem with Chicago Bears first-round offensive lineman Kyle Long last season for the Seminoles. Watson started a dozen games and was named honorable-mention All-Atlantic Coast Conference.
