The Raiders didn't waste anytime signing linebacker Khalil Mack. The fifth overall pick in the NFL Draft entered Oakland's practice facility at 11:44 a.m. PT on Thursday and by 12:15 p.m., he was under contract.

Like all first-rounders, Mack signed a four-year deal with a team-option for a fifth-year. Mack will make about $18.7 million in fully guaranteed money over the first four years of the deal, including an $11.9 million signing bonus.

Mack will wear No. 52 in Oakland.

CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco approved of the Mack pick on draft day.

Mack becomes the second first-rounder to sign a contract, joining Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller, who signed with Chicago on Wednesday.

The reason Mack and Long signed so quickly is because negotiations are basically a thing of the past thanks to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Rookie pay is predetermined by a wage scale, so a player more or less knows what he's going to get paid based on where he's taken in the draft.
