The Raiders signed fourth-round draft picks Justin Ellis and Keith McGill late Friday afternoon.

Only third-rounder Gabe Jackson hasn’t signed a contract, though an accord is expected soon.

Ellis, a defensive tackle from Louisiana Tech, and McGill, a cornerback from Utah, completed their fourth OTA session on Friday, the second on-field series of the Raiders offseason program.
