The Chicago Bears signed center Hroniss Grasu to a four-year contract Friday to lock up their 2015 NFL Draft class.

All of the Bears’ draft selections from last week are now under contract after the signing of Grasu, a third-round choice from Oregon.

Grasu anchored the offensive line for four seasons at Oregon, appearing in 52 games and earning Pac-12 first-team all-conference honors on three occasions. Grasu was one of six finalists for the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top center as a junior and senior. He earned first-team All-American honors by the Sporting News (2014), (2013-14) and SB Nation (2013) as well as second-team acclaim by the Associated Press (2014).

The 6-foot-3, 297-pound Grasu is expected to compete with veteran Will Montgomery to start at center.

The Bears previously reached deals with West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White (first round), Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (second), Michigan State running back Jeremy Langford (fourth), Penn State safety Adrian Amos (fifth) and TCU offensive tackle Tayo Fabuluje (sixth).
