The Chicago Bears have their rookie mini-camp coming up this weekend, and they’ve already inked most of their first-year players to NFL contracts.

The team announced the signings of six of their seven draft picks on Thursday, including second-round picks James Daniels and Anthony Miller.

Daniels, an offensive lineman out of Iowa and Miller, a wide receiver out of Memphis, will both be looking to help bolster the team’s offense in the coming season, as new head coach Matt Nagy tries to build a new scheme around quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

The Bears also inked fourth round pick Joel Iyiegbuniwe, fifth round pick Bilal Nichols, sixth round pick Kylie Fitts, and seventh round pick Javon Wims to contracts.

The only player the Bears have yet to sign to his rookie deal is linebacker Roquan Smith, whom they selected with the eighth overall pick in the draft late last month.

Smith will still be eligible to participate in the team’s rookie mini-camp, but won’t be able to practice with the full team until he signs his contract.
