Teams were able to start signing rookies Tuesday at 9 a.m. CT.
DeCicco (6-foot-3, 232 pounds) split time as a senior at Pittsburgh playing strong safety and weakside linebacker, and led the Panthers with 94 tackles (67 solos), and five interceptions.
A former teammate of Bears second-round pick Stephen Paea and former three-year starter for the Beavers, Linnenkohl (6-foot-3, 303 pounds) was named All-Pac 10 as a senior, but missed the final portion of the season because of a severely sprained ankle.
Smith (6-foot-5, 259 pounds) developed a reputation as a strong blocker at Virginia Tech, where he also caught 20 passes for 195 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
