The Cowboys have started getting contracts for their draft picks out of the way with rookies reporting to training camp this week.

Shortly after word of fifth-round defensive end Bradlee Anae‘s agreement on a four-year deal broke, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reported that the team has also agreed to terms with seventh-rounder Ben DiNucci. They still have deals to get done with five other picks.

DiNucci opened his time as a college quarterback at Pitt, where he backed up Nathan Peterman before getting a chance to start as a sophomore. He lost that job and transferred to James Madison for his final two collegiate seasons.

DiNucci starred in those two seasons and left school tied for third all-time in completions while ranking fourth in passing yards and passing touchdowns.
