NFL Picking Up Pace On First-Round Signings

Buffalo Bills rookie running back C.J. Spiller remains unsigned - one of a majority of first-round picks without deals - but that number is dwindling quickly. 17 first-round picks have now agreed to terms with their respective clubs, including No. 4 overall pick Trent Williams (Washington), No. 5 overall pick Eric Berry (Kansas City), No. 8 overall pick Rolando McClain (Oakland) and No. 11 overall pick Anthony Davis (San Francisco). All three of those deals should help to accelerate negotiations between the Bills and Spiller's agent, Gary Wichard.

On Wednesday, Bills GM Buddy Nix informed assembled media at St. John Fisher College that the Bills had been talking with Spiller's agent, Gary Wichard, and that "things were moving."

"We're still working on it," Nix said. "Things are moving, but no guarantees. Nothing really at this time. When you're talking, things are starting to work, and other first rounders are starting to fall, so that'll help us."

The next two deals to fall that would help the Spiller negotiations - should he continue to wait for the slotting process to fully develop - are Jaguars DT Tyson Alualu (No. 10 overall) and Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (No. 12). A listing of all signed first-round picks, and their respective contract terms, lies after the jump.
