Breaking down rookie contracts

As the Atlanta Falcons returned to organized team activities this week, one rookie remained unsigned: third-round pick Dez Southward, the safety from Wisconsin.

The other eight draft picks took care of their business early. We broke down first-round pick Jake Matthews' contract here.

Matthews' cap number of $2,987,182 is the 15th highest on the team for 2014, right behind veteran defensive end Tyson Jackson ($3.1 million).

Here are the contract details for the rest of the draft picks -- excluding Southward -- according to ESPN Stats & Information:
