Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette was the first one to report it on Twitter:
We have our first #Packers draft pick signed: Agent for seventh round draft pick Ryan Taylor said his contract is done.
Details of Taylor's contract details were provided by Bill Huber of Packer Report:
According to the new CBA, Taylor’s contract was basically etched in stone. As the 218th overall pick, he was eligible to make $389,794 in first-year pay and a four-year total of $2,143,866.
Taylor will join a crowded position group in Green Bay that also includes Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree, D.J. Williams and Spencer Havner. But it's also a group with a good amount of talent and there's a decent likelihood the Packers will keep more than three of them.
The seventh-round draft choice's calling card could come on special teams where he was a standout at the University of North Carolina. The special teams of the Packers have been regarded as one of the team's low points.
Demovsky also recently wrote on Twitter that sixth-round draft choice Ricky Elmore's deal should be done momentarily. By the end of tomorrow, there's a good chance all the rookie contracts will be done.
