According to Aaron Brown's Twitter announcement on Friday, he offically signed his contract and now is the first draft pick that we know of to be signed by the St. Louis Rams.

Of course, he didn't discuss how much money or how long the contract is, however it is most likely a four year deal.

What's the chance that the Hawaii outside linebacker will make an impact this season? Well, the folks at Pro Football Weekly like his chances.

More after the jump.

The PFW staff, chose players from every division that were drafted in the later rounds and could either start or contribute for their teams:

The first of two seventh-round draft picks, Brown was a very productive weak-side linebacker the past two years at Hawaii (186 tackles and 9½ sacks) who would appear to have a decent opportunity to, at the very least, get plenty of playing time at one or both OLB spots for the Rams. Competing against the likes of free-agent pickups Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Mario Haggan and third-year player Josh Hull, it would not be a total shock if Brown ended up sneaking into the starting lineup. New head coach Jeff Fisher believes Brown is an explosive player who runs well. As is the case with more than a few of the Rams’ draft picks this season, Brown is a talented player who has had his share of offseason issues (he was suspended from Hawaii’s 2011 season opener after an arrest in a bar fight).

While what they said was true, Brown also has two other linebackers to worry about, which the PFW staff didn't mention. Those two players are Sammy Brown and Alex Hoffman-Ellis and they have been impressing the coaching staff so far.

At least one of these three rookie linebackers can make an impact this year, right?

UPDATE from Van:

I wanted to add a few more details. St. Louis was one of four teams, along with the Cowboys, Raiders and Saints, that had still not signed any of their draft picks. Cross them off the list now.
