The Eagles kick off their rookie minicamp on Friday and they signed another draft pick before it gets underway.

The team announced that they have signed defensive tackle Beau Allen, their seventh-round pick last weekend, to a four-year contract. He joins wide receiver Josh Huff as members of the Eagles draft class with signed deals.

Allen played in 54 games during his career at Wisconsin, picking up 94 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and eight sacks during his time in Madison. The 322-pounder will be in the mix with Bennie Logan and Damion Square for snaps at nose tackle and his size could help him earn some as an early-down run stuffer.

With Allen and Huff signed, the Eagles have five more draft picks left to sign including first-round pick Marcus Smith and second-rounder Jordan Matthews.
