Center Travis Frederick was the first pick of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2013 NFL Draft. And he was the last to be signed to a contract.
The important thing is that the deal is finally done, as Frederick agreed to a four-year contract with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Financial details were not disclosed but Frederick signed for roughly $6.8 million, per a source.
The package also included guaranteed money in the ballpark of $5.5 million with signing bonus of $3.4 million.
He was the 31st pick of the first round and is expected to start immediately at center. He took all the snaps with the first team in OTAs and minicamp.
Frederick’s signing completes the seven-member draft class and marks the earliest signing by the entire class by the Cowboys in years, three weeks before the start of training camp July 19.

The Dallas Cowboys came to terms with second-round pick Gavin Escobar on a four-year deal.
The contract is worth roughly $4.3 million for the tight end who is set to backup Pro Bowler Jason Witten in 2013 and be his replacement in the near future.
Escobar is also expected to play a big role as a rookie. The Cowboys plan to use more two tight end sets to get him and Witten on the field together. He could be a huge factor in the red zone as well.

The Cowboys signed rookie safety J.J. Wilcox to a four-year contract.
Wilcox got roughly $2.73 million, including guaranteed money in the ball park of $586,000, per a source.
The third round pick, who is expected to compete for a starting spot at safety as a rookie, got a deal one day after fellow third-round pick Terrance Williams did the same. They join cornerback B.W. Webb, linebacker DeVonte Holloman and running back Joseph Randle as draft picks under contract.

IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys have secured third-round wide receiver Terrance Williams to a four-year deal.
Williams, the No. 74 pick overall, will receive a signing bonus of roughly $619,500.
The Cowboys got Williams with the extra pick they acquired in their draft-day trade with San Francisco, moving from No. 18 in the first round to No. 31 where they picked Travis Frederick.
A Dallas native, Williams caught 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior at Baylor. He finished his collegiate career with 202 catches for 3,334 yards and 27 touchdowns.
The Cowboys expect Williams to be their No. 3 receiver behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. After a slow start at the rookie minicamp, Williams’ play improved and had a productive minicamp, which ended last week.
