The Oakland Raiders have signed fourth-round draft pick Miles Burris, the team announced Friday. The linebacker is the fourth member of the club’s 2012 draft class to have agreed to terms, joining DE Jack Crawford, DT Christo Bilukidi and LB Nathan Stupar.

Burris (6-2, 236), was the Raiders’ fourth round (129th overall) in this year’s draft after being named a two-time All-Mountain West Conference first team selection at San Diego State. He led the Aztecs in tackles as a senior, posting 78 stops including 46 solo tackles, and 19.5 tackles for loss. Burris added eight sacks and three fumble recoveries as a senior.

The Granite Bay, Calif., native led the Mountain West Conference with 9.5 sacks as a junior, which ranked as the seventh-highest single-season total in program history. He also led the team with 80 tackles and was named the 2010 San Diego State Student-Athlete of the Year.
