The Oakland Raiders have signed WR Juron Criner, the final member of the team’s 2012 draft class to agree to terms, the organization announced Sunday.

The signing of the fifth-round selection means every draft choice in Reggie McKenzie’s first class as General Manager is under contract.

Criner (6-3, 221), was selected 168th overall after totaling 209 receptions for 2,859 yards and a school-record 32 touchdowns in four years at Arizona.

The native of Las Vegas, Nev., hauled in 75 passes for 956 yards and 11 touchdowns in just 11 games as a senior. He recorded 82 receptions as a junior in 2010, totaling 1,233 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games with 12 starts. He garnered first-team All-Pac-12 honors as a junior and was received second-team All-America recognition from The NFL Draft Report, CBS Sports, and Sports Illustrated.
