Third-round pick Akiem Hicks got a four-year deal worth $2.68 million. Fifth-round pick Corey White's four-year deal is worth $2.276 million. Sixth-round pick Andrew Tiller's four-year contract is worth $2.212 million, and seventh-round pick Marcel Jones has a deal that could be worth as much as $2.148 million.
