Michael Brockers, the first-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams, has signed his rookie contract.
The Rams announced the deal and posted a picture of Brockers putting pen to paper on Thursday afternoon.
St. Louis selected Brockers 14th overall after trading down from No. 2 to No. 6 in the blockbuster trade that sent Robert Griffin III to the Redskins, then trading down from No. 6 to No. 14 in the deal that landed Morris Claiborne in Dallas. In the process the Rams got two extra first-round picks and two extra second-round picks, and ended up with a player they liked a lot with the 14th pick.
A defensive lineman from LSU, Brockers was an All-SEC player in 2011, his first season as a college starter.
