That’s now four down, if you’re keeping track and this one comes as a two-fer. Appropriate, since they both played at Stanford. We’re talking about inside linebacker Blake Martinez and tackle Kyle Murphy.
Both players have been confirmed as being under contract with the Green Bay Packers.

Are these guys best friends who do everything together?
Well, we’re not really sure, but it appears they did this together.
We don’t have the exact contract details, but as with all of these non-first-round rookie contracts, they’ll be for four years.
Martinez’s maximum year one salary cap number is $545,848, while Murphy’s is $481,535.
The Packers’ other fourth-round pick, Dean Lowry, got around $2.7 million over the length of his deal. The total worth of Martinez’s deal will be slightly greater, since he was chosen six slots higher.
Three guys are left to sign — first-rounder Kenny Clark, second-rounder Jason Spriggs and third-rounder Kyler Fackrell.
