The Steelers signed their final draft pick Wednesday afternoon when they agreed to terms with first-rounder T.J. Watt on a four-year contract.

Watt’s signing came one day after third-rounder Cam Sutton signed his four-year deal. They were the last two players unsigned heading into mandatory minicamp.

Watt, an outside linebacker from Wisconsin, was the 30th overall pick in the draft. He had 70 tackles, including 17 for a loss, and 11.5 sacks at Wisconsin.

With 39-year-old James Harrison not practicing during organized team activities or minicamp, Watt has been getting repetitions with the first-team defense.
