JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-round pick Tyson Alualu.

Terms for the standout University of California defensive tackle were not disclosed, but the Florida Times-Union on Monday reported it to be a five-year pact worth $28 million with $17.5 million in guaranteed money.

Alualu was the third of five defensive tackles drafted in the first round, behind only Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy. He was the fourth defensive tackle chosen in the first round by the Jaguars and first since John Henderson in 2002.

The 6-foot-3, 304-pound Alualu was selected 10th overall in April's draft after pacing the Golden Bears in sacks with 7 1/2 and 11 1/2 tackles for a loss as a senior.

He was a two-time All-Pac-10 selection and finished his career in Berkeley with 195 tackles, 26 for a loss, and 16 sacks over 52 games (40 starts).
