The Raiders have signed first-round draft pick DJ Hayden, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Thursday.
 
The Raiders have now signed all of the team’s 10 selections from the 2013 NFL Draft. The Silver and Black begin training camp in Napa, Calif., this week, with the first practice taking place Friday.
 
Hayden (5-11, 190) was selected 12th overall by the Raiders in April. He played two seasons at the University of Houston, garnering All-Conference USA honors in both campaigns after transferring from Navarro Junior College. Hayden played in 22 career games with 21 starts at Houston, recording six interceptions, 127 tackles (90 solo), one sack, six forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and 19 passes defensed.
 
The Houston native’s senior season was limited to just nine games due to an injury to his inferior vena cava, suffered in a practice collision. As a junior, Hayden was named Conference USA Newcomer of the Year after recording two interceptions and 11 passes defensed. He helped lead Navarro Junior College to the NJCAA National Championship in 2010.
