Easley, Garoppolo lone unsigned picks

By Mike Reiss

The New England Patriots announced the signings of center Bryan Stork (4th round, 105th overall), right guard Jon Halapio (6th round, 179th) and defensive back Jemea Thomas (6th round, 206th) on Monday, leaving just two unsigned draft picks.

The unsigned draft picks are defensive lineman Dominique Easley (1st round, 29th) and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (2nd round, 62nd). No issues are anticipated with those deals getting done, as rookie contracts are now slotted as part of the new collective bargaining agreement.

That has led to quick signings across the NFL, and the Patriots are keeping pace.
