Four More 2013 First Round Draft Picks Sign Rookie Contracts

Over the past few days, four players from the first round in the 2013 NFL Draft have signed contracts with the teams that selected them. Dion Jordan (DE – Miami Dolphins), Lane Johnson (OT – Philadelphia Eagles), Barkevious Mingo (DE – Cleveland Browns) and Matt Elam (FS – Baltimore Ravens) are now all locked in and ready to officially start their NFL careers.

As we predicted, the signings are coming at a furious pace now that training camps are starting up for most teams. It also means that our First Picked/Last Signed Contest is wrapping up as well. In that contest you get the chance to guess who the last holdout will be for a great prize.

Jordan, Johnson and Mingo were selected in the top six overall, while Matt Elam was the very last player selected in the first round… a spot where the pundits were predicting the Baltimore Ravens might select Notre Dame linebacker Mantei Te’o.
