Eric Kush and Mike Catapano are the first two draft picks to sign from last month’s NFL draft.

Kush, a center from California University of Pennsylvania, was the Chiefs sixth-round draft pick, and Catapano, a defensive lineman from Princeton, was the Chiefs seventh-round pick. Terms of the deal were not released but estimates from OverTheCap.com would suggest both deals would be worth around $420,000 this season against the salary cap.

The signing of Kush and Catapano leaves six draft picks unsigned for the Chiefs: Eric Fisher, Travis Kelce, Knile Davis, Nico Johnson, Sanders Commings, and Braden Wilson. Official training camp dates have not been set yet but the Chiefs likely have until the last 7 to 10 days of July to sign their draft picks without cutting into camp.

The Chiefs also opened their rookie mini-camp today which saw a lot a lot of familiar faces from local schools. Kansas Jayhawks linebacker Toben Opurnum and quarterback Dayne Crist; Kansas State kicker Anthony Cantele; and Missouri kicker Trey Barrow attended the camp on a tryout basis. None of the players are under contract with the Chiefs.
