We are just about at the half way mark as 15 of the 32 first round picks from the 2012 NFL Draft have signed with the team selecting them. The latest news is that Michael Floyd, wide receiver out of Notre Dame, has signed a 4-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals with $10M guaranteed.
Floyd is a big, physical receiver and it is said that he will immediately take some pressure off of perennial pro bowler Larry Fitzgerald. With Fitz at 6′-3″, 218 pounds and now Floyd at the same height and 220 pounds, the Cardinals definitely have a pair of twin towers… now they just need someone to throw to them.
Michael Floyd is now a wrong answer in our First Picked/Last Signed contest. To be eligible to win the contest, you just need to guess the player selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft who will be the very last to sign a contract with the team that selected him. You can enter every day until there is one draft pick left unsigned.
The contest will run until all but one players are signed, and that appears to be happening pretty quickly, so get your picks in now. For more information and details, visit the official contest entry page.
The most popular pick so far has been Andrew Luck, the first overall pick and heir apparent to the Peyton Manning dynasty in Indianapolis. 16.5% of entrants are picking Luck to be the final 2012 draft pick signed. Not far behind him is the #2 overall pick, Robert Griffin III (RG3) at 12%. The rest of the field is pretty even.
