Holding up the reputation as a team quick to sign their rookie draft class, the Chicago Bears reeled in first-round and second-round picks Kevin White and Eddie Goldman respectively. White inked a four-year deal with a fifth-year option while Goldman signed a four-year contract.

With those moves, only third-round choice Hroniss Grasu, the center from Oregon, remains unsigned.
