CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Panthers have signed all five of their draft picks.

Carolina announced Thursday it has signed fifth-round draft pick A.J. Klein from Iowa State and sixth-round selection Kenjon Barner from Oregon, assuring all of their draft picks will be at training camp on time.

Financial terms of the deals were not released.

The Panthers announced earlier Thursday they signed first-rounder Star Lotulelei and third-rounder Edmund Kugbila. Carolina previously signed second-round pick Kawann Short.

General manager Dave Gettleman says the Panthers are "thrilled to have all of our draft choices under contract."

Klein is a three-time All-Big 12 Conference linebacker who recorded 117 tackles in each of the last two seasons.

Barner, who the Panthers view as a potential scat back, ran for 3,623 yards rushing and 41 TDs at Oregon.
