And how many have signed throughout the NFL?
Not a whole bunch. Some teams have signed a few, but only the Bears have signed all their picks.

I think Mario Williams is still the only #1 that has signed.

its easier to sign draft picks when you don't have a first rounder and the Bears wanted them done early because last year Benson held out almost into the start of the season.

The eagles have signed their third and fourth rounders, the cards their last 2 picks so yeah not too many

The guy at the top of the second round has signed. Players in every round have signed as a matter of fact. I would think they could project those slotted values already.

My reads are telling me contract increases of ~ 4% over last year.

Agents ask for ~ 20%.

The rookie pool only went up 5% from last year so the earlier they sign, the better before the rookie pool dries up.
