Bills draft picks 2013: five rookies now under contract

Harry How

The Bills have now signed five of their eight 2013 NFL Draft picks; only the first three (EJ Manuel, Robert Woods, Kiko Alonso) remain unsigned.

Just like that, five of the eight 2013 NFL Draft picks made by the Buffalo Bills are under contract.

We knew about the signing of seventh-round tight end Chris Gragg last night and of fourth-round safety Duke Williams this morning; now the Bills have announced that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, safety Jonathan Meeks and kicker Dustin Hopkins are signed, as well.

Goodwin, the team's third-round pick, will sign a contract in the neighborhood of four years and $2.78 million with a $590,000 signing bonus. Meeks, picked in the fifth round, will have a contract in the vicinity of four years and $2.21 million with a $200,000 signing bonus. Finally, the contract for the sixth-round pick, Hopkins, will be four years at $2.21 million with a $114,000 signing bonus.

That leaves just three Bills draft picks without deals: first-round pick quarterback E.J. Manuel and two second-round picks, wide receiver Robert Woods and linebacker Kiko Alonso. Once those three deals are ironed out - and once the team gets the Jairus Byrd situation settled - all 90 of the team's players will be under contract.
