Two down, four to go.

The Cleveland Browns have signed a second draft pick from their 2014 class thus far, continuing to work their way up from the later and middle rounds.

The team has reached an agreement with third-round linebacker Christian Kirksey on a deal worth $3.04 million over four years and a $662,500 signing bonus, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and National Football Post. It was also later confirmed by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

This signing comes about a week after the Browns inked fourth-round CB Pierre Desir, leaving just four more rookies to sign as the organized team activities continue throughout June.
