Draft stick signing used to have more drama around it. Now it has become more formal – at least with most pickers.
The Cowboys were able to write on seven of eight draft picks on Friday, including second rounds of Trysten Hill and fourth round back Tony Pollard, who was actually the first to sign his deal Friday morning before the first training session.
Subsequently, Hill and fifth-rounders Joe Jackson and Mike Jackson, along with sixth-security security Donovan Wilson and seventh round Mike Weber and Jalen Jelks, took all the opportunity to sign the dotted line on their four-year contract.
The only thing that was about to complete the class is something Cowboys ̵
1; and most NFL teams – have expected. Third Round Pick Connor McGovern has not yet signed, and it will probably not for a while when law tries to figure out the offset language during the final year of the contract. It is the same reason that Maliek Collins (2016), Jourdan Lewis (2017) and Michael Gallup (2018) all took longer than the rest of the class to sign their offers.
Last year, Gallup did not wait long for his day on May 21.
