The Philadelphia Eagles have all their rookies from this NFL Draft under contract.

Landon Dickerson signed his deal on Monday, which gives Alabama football its eighth player from the draft to sign a contract.

He was the captain of the Crimson Tide’s offensive line in 2020. Dickerson paced Alabama’s offense to averaging 48.5 points per game, and it allowed for Mac Jones, DeVonta Smith, and Najee Harris to be Heisman finalists.

Dickerson’s efforts helped Jones and Smith set single-season school records. His protection of Jones propelled Smith to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy.

Dickerson was a Unanimous First-Team All-American and winner of the Rimington Trophy.

He was selected at No. 37 overall in the NFL Draft by the Eagles. According to Dave Zangaro, who covers the Eagles for NBC Sports in Philadelphia, Dickerson has signed his contract.

As an early second-round pick, he is projected to make $8.6 million with a $3.6 million signing bonus.

The 2020 national champion looks to win a starting job for the Eagles.
