After the NFL Draft, teams started the contract negotiations with their rookies.
At least there’s no drama regarding a first-round draftee holding out because they have all signed their first deals.
Their pay depends on their position in the draft order.
Therefore, number one overall selection Travon Walker is paid substantially more than 32nd pick, Lewis Cine.
Again, let it be a reminder that they were selected to play football and help their team win games and possibly championships.
But before they hit the field during training camp, here are some of them participating in an art activity.

The rookies were asked to draw their team’s logo from memory.
Joining the challenge are Carson Strong, Sam Howell, Pierre Strong Jr., Christian Watson, and Skyy Moore.
Walker, Damian Pierce, Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, Drake London, and Trey McBride took part as well, along with a handful of big names joining the league this year.
Everyone was game in completing the task, even if their illustrations looked like cheap knockoffs of their team’s logo.
However, all can be forgiven if they demonstrate the art of playing excellent football.
The Real Challenge Starts
These rookies will head into training camp wherein teams will whittle down their rosters to 53 men.
There’s no guarantee that they will make it even if they are highly-touted prospects.
Therefore, they must bring out the best version of themselves on the field to make the cut.
Otherwise, drafting them would be a waste of resources for the squad.
The art challenge is nothing compared to the grind that awaits them.NEXT: Tom Brady Attempts To Recruit An NBA Star To The NFL
