The entire 2014 Bears draft class is now in the fold.

The Bears announced on Thursday they have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Will Sutton, their last remaining unsigned draft pick, on a four-year contract.

Sutton, the Bears third-round (82nd overall) selection out of Arizona State, is a two-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. Sutton started all 14 games for the Sun Devils in 2013, collecting 48 tackles, 13.5 tackles for losses and four sacks.

In 51 games over seasons (2009, 2011-13) with Arizona State, Sutton registered 161 tackles, 45.5 TFLs, 20.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and eight passes defended.

Sutton is one of two defensive tackles taken by the Bears on Day 2 of the NFL Draft. Chicago used their second-round pick (No. 51 overall) to draft LSU's Ego Ferguson. Both players are expected to play significant roles early in their careers.

The Bears are the first team to sign all of their 2014 draft picks.

Each member of the draft class is expected to be in attendance for the team's rookie mini-camp, beginning Friday at Halas Hall.
