At least 185 of 254 draft picks have signed


In late April, 254 players were drafted by NFL teams. In early June, 72.8 percent of them are officially under contract.

Per a source with knowledge of the information, the NFLPA has received and logged 185 contracts. At least four other players (all Raiders) have agreed to terms, but have not had their information included in the database.

Officially, 45 of 48 seventh-rounders have agreed to terms, along with 33 of 38 sixth-rounders and 32 of 35 fifth-round picks. The only round with fewer than 54 percent of the players signed is the first round, where six of 32 players have agreed to terms.

The rookie wage scale, launched in 2011, has made the process of negotiating incoming player contracts much easier. For first rounders, there are only two pressure points -- whether “offset” language will apply to the fully guaranteed money for the players taken in the top 10, and the specific point at which the round-one contracts will cease being fully guaranteed.

Only the Rams have yet to sign a single 2013 draft pick.
