Bulaga, Neal Among 97 Unsigned

Two of the Packers' seven picks remain unsigned, which is hardly unusual. No team has signed all of its draft picks. We have the latest on who remains unsigned, courtesy of The Sports Xchange.

The Green Bay Packers have signed five of their seven draft picks, with only first-rounder Bryan Bulaga and second-rounder Mike Neal unsigned with the first day of training camp set for July 31.

Compared to the rest of the league, the Packers are in good shape, which means there will be a flurry of contract negotiations in the next two weeks. As of Tuesday afternoon, 97 draft choices had either not signed or agreed to terms, of which 62 are in the first two rounds. In those first two rounds, only Buccaneers second-round defensive tackle Brian Price (35th overall) and Jets second-round guard Vladimir Ducasse (61st overall) have signed. The 97 total includes running back Harvey Unga of Chicago and defensive tackle Joshua Price-Brent of Dallas, who were selected in last week's supplemental draft.

Throughout the remainder of the draft, there are 11 unsigned third-round picks, five in the fourth round, four in the fifth, five in the sixth and 10 in the seventh, including Unga and Price-Brent. Five of the 25 picks from the fourth round on were selected by Indianapolis, which has yet to sign any of its draft choices.

No team has signed all of its draft picks. Chicago has one (Unga) unsigned, Detroit has two (first-rounders Ndamukong Suh and Jahvid Best) and Minnesota has six (second-rounders Chris Cook and Toby Gerhart, fourth-rounder Everson Griffen, fifth-rounder Chris DeGeare, sixth-rounder Joe Webb and seventh-rounder Mickey Shuler).

The urgency is considerable for teams that report earlier than others. Cleveland's rookies report Friday, a full week before the Browns' veterans. Cleveland has five unsigned picks: cornerback Joe Haden (first round), safety T.J. Ward (second), running back Montario Hardesty (third), quarterback Colt McCoy (third) and guard Shawn Lauvao (third).

Rookies and veterans report to Dallas' camp Saturday, as the Cowboys work to sign wide receiver Dez Bryant (first), linebacker Sean Lee (second) and cornerback Jamar Wall (sixth). The Vikings don't start practices until July 30, but they have six rookies to sign.

Following are the league's unsigned picks starting with the third round, and then the order of reporting dates for all NFL teams.
