The Cardinals have all their draft picks under contract.

Third-round pick Mason Cole inked his four-year deal on Thursday afternoon, joining the rest of the draft class as official members of the team. Cole was awaiting his moment after the five others signed in recent weeks.

“Obviously, it’s really exciting,” Cole said. “Once you get drafted, you’re waiting for this point to officially sign. Really grateful for the opportunity, and just excited.”

Cole, an interior offensive lineman, said the transition to the NFL has gone well. He said the veterans at his position have accepted him with open arms.

“The biggest thing is how welcoming all the older guys have been,” Cole said. “The guys in the OL room have been really great, really helpful, really positive. I’m just excited to get going with them.”
