It's official, folks! The Rams have inked all six of their 2016 draft picks. The only rookie to net a contract worth more than $1 million dollars per year is the team's new signal caller.
Jared Goff, QB, Cal - 1st Round
Goff just finalized a four-year deal worth $27.9 million dollars. His contract also came with $18.6 million dollars in signing bonuses. Closing the deal with your team's highly sought after rookie quarterback can only be captured by Goff himself:

Tyler Higbee, TE, Western Kentucky - 4th Round
Much like the rest of the rookies outside of Goff, Higbee's deal averages less than a million dollars per year. The overall value of his deal is worth a hair under $3 million dollars over four years.
Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina - 4th Round
Cooper's contract is nearly identical to Higbee's. He makes a few thousand dollars less per year, but his average yearly income will still be around $720,000 dollars.
Not that it will earn him any more money, but Cooper takes the cake in terms of aesthetics during today's contract signings.
Temarrick Hemingway, TE, South Carolina State - 6th Round
Hemingway will cash in right around $2.5 million dollars over his four-year contract.
Josh Forrest, LB, Kentucky - 6th Round
Forrest, like Hemingway, will be making just under $2.5 million dollars throughout his Rams contract.
It's official for Josh Forrest! Congrats! pic.twitter.com/KZ24aEKkGF— Dani Klupenger (@daniklup) June 9, 2016
Mike Thomas, WR, Southern Miss - 6th Round
Last but certainly not least, Thomas will be on par with his fellow 6th rounders as his contract totals a notch below $2.5 million dollars. Despite being the lowest paid rookie, he has the tools to well outplay his pay rate and draft slot.
