First Round Draft Picks Signings Begin

Seattle Seahawks first-round draft pick Bruce Irvin became the first first-round pick to sign a contract today.

It's a new NFL. A few years ago, the rule for first round draft picks was to hold out as long as possible so you could get the most money possible. However, with the new collective bargaining agreement that went into effect last year, those days are a thing of the past.

The Seattle Seahawks have signed their first round pick, linebacker Bruce Irvin.

With the new CBA's rookie wage scale in place, it won't be long before the rest of the first round draft picks, to include the Miami Dolphins' rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, all are signed to deals. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora expects a large number of the signings to happen this week.

What's your guess on when Tannehill signs?
