Just five days after the 2014 NFL Draft ended, the Chicago Bears have their entire draft class signed.
The Bears signed Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton (third-round pick) to a four-deal on Thursday, making them the first NFL team to have their full 2014 draft class under contract.

Contracts for NFL draft picks are preset by draft position these days, so it shouldn't be difficult to get the contracts done, and Bears cap guru Cliff Stein didn't want to waste any time. The team signed first-round pick Kyle Fuller to a four-deal on Wednesday, leaving Sutton as the only remaining unsigned pick, and they took care of Sutton's deal quickly the next morning.
