The Jaguars announced Wednesday that they have signed fifth-round DE Austen Lane.

The 6-5, 274 pound Lane becomes the second of six Jaguars 2010 draft picks to come to terms on a contract — DE Larry Hart, a fellow fifth-rounder, signed late Tuesday.

Lane, a Murray State University product, started 40-of-43 games, recording a school-record 29 sacks and 55 tackles for a loss. He is the highest-drafted player in school history (153rd overall).

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Lane is "light on his feet for a big man with nice agility and quickness" and "shows a good short-area burst to close to the ball."

Lane will compete with three other defensive ends — Hart, fourth-year player Jeremy Mincey and undrafted rookie Aaron Morgan — for playing time behind starters Aaron Kampman and Derrick Harvey.
