The Landon Dickerson deal is done.

All nine picks from the Philadelphia Eagles2021 NFL Draft class are now under contract.

With eight rookies signing in June, second-round pick Landon Dickerson was the only player who remained unsigned. That changed today with the team officially announcing Dickerson signed.

A recap of the entire class:

1 (10) – DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

2 (37) – Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama

3 (73) – Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech

4 (123) – Zech McPhearson, CB, Texas Tech

5 (150) – Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

6 (189) – Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, USC

6 (191) – Tarron Jackson, DE, Coastal Carolina

6 (224) – JaCoby Stevens, LB, LSU

7 (234) – Patrick Johnson, LB, Tulane

These rookie contracts are four-year deals worth predetermined amounts of money (more on that below). The Eagles have the ability to exercise a fifth-year option on Smith’s contract since he was a first-round pick.

Signing draft picks used to be a bigger issue before the last two Collective Bargaining Agreements. Aside from some occasional exceptions, rookie contract signings are really just a formality in today’s NFL. Still, the Eagles will be glad to have gotten some paperwork out of the way.

Here’s a look at the projected cap numbers for all of these players, via Over The Cap:
