One is the loneliest number...

As noted in yesterday's post, the signing of third round pick James Jones had to happen in short fashion as the second round pick, Brandon Jackson, had already signed. And so...Jones is now signed. According to reports, Jones agreed to a four-year deal loaded with incentives in the last year of the contract.

That leaves first round pick, #16 overall in the draft, Justin Harrell, as the only unsigned draft pick. News reports indicate that signings of first rounders across the league have been slow, with only 11 of 32 picks under contract at the time of this post. Still, it is expected that the Packers will get the deal done with Harrell soon. GM Ted Thompson was quoted as saying he thought all picks would be in camp for the first practice tomorrow afternoon. So, watch for further developments today and tomorrow.
