The Patriots have five of their seven draft picks signed. With the understanding that rookie negotiations are far less dramatic now than they used to be — everyone is slotted in, and for the most part, it’s just a matter of signing on the dotted line — here’s a look at their representation and contract information. The information is based on the latest paperwork filed with the NFLPA, as well as contract information from Rotoworld:
Second round (52nd overall): OLB Jamie Collins, Southern Miss: Signed on May 17 — a four-year, $3.761 million contract that included a $1.115 million signing bonus. Collins is repped by James ‘Bus’ Cook and Donald Weatherall.
