FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys are moving quickly to get most of their 2018 draft class signed.
Seven of the team's nine draft picks, including second-round selection Connor Williams, are expected to officially sign as early as the end of the day Thursday.
Also close to signing deals are fourth-round picks Dalton Schultz and Dorance Armstrong; fifth-round pick Mike White; sixth-round picks Chris Covington and Cedrick Wilson; and seventh-round pick Bo Scarbrough.
The Cowboys still have first-round linebacker Leighton Vander Esch and third-round receiver Michael Gallup to sign, too, but reports say they're currently not as close in negotiations yet.
All the rookies are expected to participate in five walkthrough-type practices Thursday-Sunday at rookie minicamp, which head coach Jason Garrett calls more of an "orientation" to the Cowboys' program.
