Tuesday night's contract for the cornerback means all 12 of the Jets' draft picks are in the fold.
McDougle missed the final nine games at Maryland last season with a shoulder injury. The speedy defensive back was cleared by Jets team doctors last week to participate fully in practice. He worked with the second-team defense during the team's first minicamp practice Tuesday and drew raves from coach Rex Ryan after breaking up a few passes.
Ryan says: ''He's all business on the field. I think you saw a little bit of why we're so excited about him and optimistic about him.''
McDougle had three interceptions last season, including one for a touchdown.
