Tempe, AZ (Sports Network) - The Arizona Cardinals signed a pair of 2012 draft picks to long-term deals on Monday.

First-round selection and wide receiver Michael Floyd signed a five-year deal, while third-round choice and cornerback Jamell Fleming inked a four-year pact.

Floyd, out of Notre Dame, set school records by posting 271 receptions for 3,686 yards and 37 touchdowns in 43 games over four seasons. He also tallied 17 career 100-yard receiving performances to create another program record.

In his senior season of 2011, Floyd racked up 100 catches for 1,147 yards and nine scores.

Fleming, an Oklahoma product, was voted first-team All-Big 12 after recording 60 tackles and a fumble returned for a touchdown in 11 starts.

All told, the Dallas native tallied 131 tackles, seven interceptions, one sack and one fumble recovery in 51 appearances. He added a pair of defensive MVPs in the Fiesta Bowl (2011) and Insight Bowl (2012).
