Former Clemson cornerback Trayvon Mullen signed his NFL rookie contract on Tuesday with the Oakland Raiders.

Mullen, who was the defensive MVP in the national championship win over Alabama, was selected with the 40th overall pick in the NFL draft's second round. Spotrac estimates a $7.2 million contract overall with a $3.3 million signing bonus for Mullen.

He totaled 93 tackles (68 solo), 4.5 tackles for loss, four interceptions, one forced fumble and 12 passes defensed over three seasons at Clemson.

Mullen was named second-team All-American by ACFA and second-team All-ACC in 2018 while earning All-ACC Honorable Mention in 2017.

New and old teammate Clelin Ferrell signed his first-round deal with Oakland also on Tuesday.
