    It took some time, but 4 of the newest ' rookies have signed their first deal with the team. , , , and are all now under contract and ready for what lies ahead in the and beyond!

    It goes without saying that Ezekiel Elliott headlines this group, as his contract is just a formality. Ever since his selection was announced, Cowboys Nation has fully embraced the team's newest dynamic . Even still, there's a certain level of excitement in seeing Elliott in that Cowboys jacket, smiling as he puts pen to paper.

    Outside of Elliott, the other 3 rookies the team signed today could also make big impacts this season. Another running back, 6th round pick Darius Jackson, will hope to compliment Elliott as a speedy back out of Eastern Michigan.

    On the defensive side of the ball, CB Anthony Brown and S Kavon Frazier will try to tighten up a secondary for the Cowboys that could certainly use help. To see my projected roles for the entire defensive draft class, click here.

    With 4 signings in the books, the Cowboys still have 5 rookies left to lock up. These would be LB , DT , DE , QB , and TE .

    UPDATE: According to Todd Archer, Elliott's deal with the Cowboys is worth $24.9 million, with a $16.3 million signing bonus.
