Flowery Branch — Curtis Lofton, the Falcons' second-round draft pick from Oklahoma, signed a four-year contract Friday, according to coach Mike Smith.

Lofton's signing leaves offensive tackle Sam Baker as the only unsigned draft pick. Lofton is expected to contend for the starting middle linebacker position.

"That was the goal all along," said Todd France, Lofton's agent. "We want him to be able to contribute and make an immediate impact."

Smith said the talks with Baker were "ongoing" and that he was hopeful that the contract would get done in time for Baker to join the team for the first workout at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
