2013 NFL Draft: 1st Round Picks still to sign

The Miami Dolphins are preparing for training camp, which opens this weekend. However, third overall pick from April's NFL Draft is yet to sign. Is Dion Jordan not being under contract extraordinary at this point, or is it the norm?


There is starting to be some worry among Miami Dolphins fans right now. It's not about the 2013 season, but about the 2013 first round draft pick. The team has not yet signed Dion Jordan, for whom they traded up to the third overall selection, and training camp is just two days away. But, should that be worrisome, or is the first round pick not being signed the norm at this point?

To get an idea of how things stand, here's a look at all 32 first round selections, and the deals that have been completed (all deals are for 4-years):

Contract value and guarantee percentage from

Only 13 of the 32 first round draft picks are under contract at this point, with only three of the top 10 having signed. Included in that is obviously Jordan, who, looking at the chart, should see a value right around the $20 million total value mark.

The Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys open up their training camps, with rookies and veterans reporting on Saturday before the first practices on Sunday. The Cowboys have already signed their first pick, with center Travis Frederick under contract.

Before then, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (yesterday), the New Orleans Saints (today), and the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns (Friday) all having their rookies report for camp. The 49ers and Saints both have their first round pick under contract, while the Browns have yet to sign defensive end Barkevious Mingo. The Buccaneers did not have a first round selection.

Obviously, the Dolphins would like to complete the negotiations with Jordan prior to the start of training camp, and they are a little behind the other teams with the rookies reporting this week. However, with the majority of the first round still to sign, the team seems right in line with where they should be.
