Rookie signings update in the AFC West

The number of unsigned AFC West draft picks decreased to four on Tuesday when Oakland signed fourth-round quarterback Tyler Wilson.

However, there are two high-profile draft picks in the division who remain unsigned -- the No. 1 overall pick, tackle Eric Fisher in Kansas City, and the No. 12 overall pick, cornerback D.J. Hayden in Oakland.

Currently, there aren’t any major concerns that either player will be a long holdout.

Hayden’s situation is unique because of health reasons. He had surgery in the spring to repair issues stemming from a life-threatening heart surgery he had last November. The Raiders have said they expect Hayden to be ready for training camp, which starts Friday. But there hasn’t been any recent prognosis from the team.

If Hayden still needs some recovery time, it could stall talks.

The other two unsigned draft picks in the AFC West are Denver first-round pick, defensive lineman Sylvester Williams, and Oakland second-round pick, offensive tackle Menelik Watson. It seems both of those deals are just a matter of time.
