    Other times could take weeks, or months..

    usally, the team hopes and has sucessfully done, by the start of Training Camp. At least for the high picks. Of course there is exception to this rule.(see-"holdout").

    Alot of it matters on how the "picks" are.........if they want to get it done, or think they are more valuable then they really are. The market usually shows what they should get. Then it's up to them to sign.

    A rule of thumb is that 5th round and later should be signed by June 1.
    Thereafter allow one week for each round. 4th rounders signed the 1st week. 3rd rounders the second week. 2nd round late in the third week and 1st round in the last week of July.

    The responses are true and due to the fact that the first signings set the market. If your pick was #20 and another guy signed anywhere from #15-25, then the market is set for your pick and a deal can get done.

    Also, the #1 pick (Mario Williams) has already signed.
