The Colts announced the signing of fifth-round pick Jonathan Newsome on Tuesday.

Newsome is the first of Indianapolis’ five draft selections to sign a contract.

Newsome (6-3, 247) will play outside linebacker in the Colts’ 3-4 scheme. In two seasons as a defensive end at Ball State, Newsome notched 116 tackles and 16.5 sacks. He began his collegiate career at Ohio State (2009-2010).

Should Newsome make the club, it could be as a second-string outside linebacker. Robert Mathis, Erik Walden and Bjoern Werner are the Colts’ top three veterans at the position.
