Report: Colts sign five of seven 2021 draft picks

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts have signed five of their seven 2021 draft picks, per Stephen Holder.

First-round pick Kwity Paye, 2nd-round pick Dayo Odeyingbo, 5th-round pick Shawn Davis and 7th-round picks Michael Strachan and Will Fries have signed their rookie deals. 6th-round pick Sam Ehlinger and 4th-round pick Kylan Granson have not signed yet.

Although, it’s likely only a matter of time before both Ehlinger and Granson sign their rookie deals, too.

For Paye, his contract is a 4-year deal with a fifth-year option worth $13.64 million and with a $7.3 million signing bonus, per NFL Update.

As of right now, the only other contract details are for the team’s 7th-round pick, Will Fries. Fries’ contract is a 4-year, $3.66 million deal with an $85,376 signing bonus, per Mike Chappell.

Additionally, the team also announced the dates for their offseason. Rookie minicamp will be this coming weekend, OTAs on May 25-27, June 2-4, and June 7-10. Lastly, mandatory minicamp will be June 15-17, per Kevin Bowen.

While we’d normally get to see the rookies — at least somewhat — during their minicamp, due to COVID restrictions, the rookie camp won’t consist of actual practices, per Stephen Holder.

In other words, this likely means that fans — if they’re allowed to attend training camp this year — won’t get to see the rookies “in action” until that time.
