    Robert Griffin III is signed, Andrew Luck should soon follow suit. Griffin's deal is expected to make it easy for the other top eight players in the draft to sign their contracts, right? In Justin Blackmon's case, we wouldn't be as confident, Tania Ganguli spoke to someone familiar with Blackmon's negotiations who wasn't so sure he would be in camp on time. The Jacksonville Jaguars seem likely to look for more protection in Blackmon's deal because of his recent DUI arrest, it only makes sense that would hurt him at the bargaining table. The situation is not dissimilar from Janoris Jenkins' issues with the St. Louis Rams as both the Jaguars and the Rams want a safety net with riskier players and while most rookies in this new CBA world get easily solved McContracts, Blackmon's deal is a little more complicated.
