49ers rookie contracts: six down, one to go

And then there was one...

The 49ers made a flurry of deals on Thursday, signing six of their seven draft picks to four-year contracts. The only outstanding selection is first-round choice A.J. Jenkins, whose agent said that the wide receiver's deal would be done long before training camp begins. The new collective bargaining agreement has a rookie wage scale that makes rookie contracts far less contentious than they used to be.

"It feels good to get this other stuff out of the way," said sixth-round pick Trenton Robinson. "I can just focus on doing what I have to do."
