Cardinals sign first-round pick Deone Bucannon

The Cardinals have reached a deal with their first-round pick.

Strong safety Deone Bucannon, the No. 27 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, has signed his four-year contract with Arizona, the club said Thursday. He is the last of the Cardinals’ seven draft picks to strike a deal with the club.

Bucannon had a productive and decorated career at Washington State, earning first-team All-American honors from The Associated Press as a senior. In four seasons with the Cougars, the 6-foot-1, 208-pound Bucannon intercepted 15 passes and recorded 384 tackles.

Bucannon looks likely to team with the playmaking Tyrann Mathieu at safety. Mathieu, who showed such promise as a rookie in 2013, is on the mend after a December ACL tear.

    Shaping up to be a tough secondary.

    He’s definitely a thumper. Can’t wait to watch Lynch run him over.

    AZ is a better team than Santa Clara. That secondary is nasty. And I’m a Seahawks fan.

    Honestly, I’m jealous, I was praying this dude would fall to the Redskins.

    T-Wrecks (Honey Badger), BlackJack (PP21), and Who’s Your Daddy?! (Cromartie) welcome The Cannon to the No Fly Zone.

    Honey Badger hawking the ball and Bucanon bringing the pain. Cardinals fans have reason to be excited.
