The best thing about the current Collective Bargaining Agreement is how quickly rookie contracts get signed. The New York Giants today signed four more rookies, including first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. In addition to Beckham, who was drafted 12th overall by the Giants, center Weston Richburg (second round, 43rd overall), linebacker Devon Kennard (fifth round, 174th overall), and cornerback Bennett Jackson (sixth round, 187th overall) all signed with the team on Monday.

On Friday, the Giants inked the first two members of the draft class, fourth-round running back Andre Williams and fifth-round safety Nat Berhe.

Today's signings leave third-round choice, defensive tackle Jay Bromley, as the only player unsigned of the seven-member draft class.

Beckham Jr. is expected to compete with Reuben Randle for a starting job, while Richburg and free-agent signee J.D. Walton will compete for the starting spot at center. Kennard and Jackson will be competing for reserve roles at their respective positions.
