The Arizona Cardinals on Monday signed running back David Johnson, their third-round pick in this year’s draft, to a four-year contract.

The Cardinals also signed tight end Gerald Christian, their seventh-round pick, to a four-year contract.

With today’s signings, six of the team’s seven 2015 draft picks have signed contracts; only first-round selection D.J. Humphries remains unsigned.

Johnson played at Northern Iowa where he broke 15 school records. He rushed for 1,553 yards and 17 touchdowns last season.

Christian caught 60 passes for 810 yards and nine touchdowns in two seasons at Louisville.

The final pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, Christian became the 40th Mr. Irrelevant since the tradition began in 1976.
