NFL draft choices often get slotted into contracts based on where they were drafted. With the players near where Bills third-round pick Alex Carrington was drafted beginning to sign, there’s hope the defensive end might not be that far away from being the next in line.
Carrington was the 72nd overall pick this past spring. To this point a few players taken shortly after him have signed with their respective NFL teams. Chicago S Major Wright, who went three picks after Carrington signed on May 28th. Giants safety Chad Jones taken right after Wright signed June 11th and pick 80, Denver OL J.D. Walton signed earlier this week.
The signings are a bit spread out so it will likely still take some time, especially since no one drafted ahead of Carrington in round three has signed to this point, nor have the two draft choices taken right after Carrington. Only then will the numbers be more concrete for both sides.
