On the eve of the start of training camp, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie announced Wednesday that the team has signed second-round draft pick Menelik Watson.
An offensive lineman, Watson's signing leaves the Raiders with just one of their 10 picks in April's draft unsigned.
The Raiders hold their first training camp practice Friday in Napa, Calif.
The 6-5, 315 lb. Watson was the 42nd overall pick in the annual draft. A native of Manchester, England, he played his last season of college football at Florida State after transferring from Saddleback Junior College in Mission Viejo, Calif.
He played in 13 games for the Seminoles (12 starts) and earned All-ACC honorable mention honors. Watson gave up just one sack on a line that gave up just 26 sacks all season. In addition, Watson helped anchor a front line that allowed FSU to record a team-record 6,591 total offensive yards.
Prior to playing at Saddleback JC, Watson played two years of college basketball at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
