ALAMEDA (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed first-round draft pick Kolton Miller to a rookie contract.

The deal announced Friday gives the Raiders six of their nine draft picks under contract.

The Raiders traded down five spots to select Miller 15th overall last month to be their left tackle of the future.

Miller played three seasons at UCLA, appearing in 31 games with 23 starts at both left and right tackle over his career. He is being groomed on the left side in Oakland, where he is expected to eventually take over the job from starter Donald Penn.

The Raiders have three unsigned draft picks remaining in third-rounders Brandon Parker and Arden Key, and fourth-rounder Nick Nelson.
