The Arizona Cardinals signed five rookie draft picks to four-year deals on Friday, completing their 2019 NFL Draft class after signing six on Thursday.

Wide receiver Andy Isabella, fourth-round pick Hakeem Butler, safety Deionte Thompson, offensive lineman Lamont Gaillard and defensive lineman Michael Dogbe were the remaining selections left to be signed.

First overall pick Kyler Murray, second-round pick Byron Murphy, defensive lineman Zach Allen, sixth-round selection KeeSean Johnson, offensive lineman Josh Miles and tight end Caleb Wilson were all signed to four-year deals on Thursday.

Isabella was the team’s third player selected in the draft, picked No. 62 overall via the Miami Dolphins in the Josh Rosen trade made on day two. The 5-foot-9 wideout led all NCAA receivers with 1,698 receiving yards last season and tied for fifth-most TDs with 13. He tied for the fastest 40-yard dash time among wide receivers at the NFL Combine, clocking in at 4.31 seconds.

Butler recorded 1,318 receiving yards and nine touchdowns for Iowa State in 2018, his junior season.

With the Cardinals’ lack of depth at wide receiver and head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense, Isabella and Butler will have a chance to compete for targets from Murray right away.
