Coty Sensabaugh, a safety from Clemson, is one of several area defensive players who could be picked in the NFL draft.

Coty Sensabaugh is wasting no time getting started with his NFL career.

According to The (Nashville) Tennessean, the former Clemson cornerback was the first member of the Tennessee Titans’ draft class to sign a contract.

The fourth-round selection agreed to a four-year contract which is worth approximately $2.5 million.

Sensabaugh is expected to earn base salaries of $390,000 in 2012, $480,000 (in ’13), $570,000 (in ‘14) and $660,000 (in ’15).

He was on the practice field in Nashville Friday for the Titans’ rookie camp; teams across the NFL are holding rookie minicamps this week.

Meanwhile, another former Clemson player is trying to get his career back on track in a minicamp this weekend.

Tailback James Davis, the Tigers’ No.2 all-time leading rusher, was in the Carolina Panthers’ camp for a tryout. Davis has bounced around the NFL since the Cleveland Browns made him a sixth-round selection in 2009.

He was placed on injured reserve three games into the 2009 season after being injured in a practice incident in a planned drill where he was reportedly not wearing shoulder pads.

Davis was released by the Browns in 2010 and signed to the Washington Redskins’ practice squad; he was released last August after believing he could earn more playing time elsewhere.

He spent parts of last season on the practice squads of the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans.
