Signed, sealed, and soon to be delivered.

The Edmonton Eskimos yesterday inked all four of their picks from the 2007 draft, meaning they'll all be ready to go when training camp opens June 3.

"It was a very strong draft year and we're happy to have all of our picks signed," said Eskimos head coach and director of football operations, Danny Maciocia.

"We're looking forward to getting on the field and seeing how they can perform."

Leading the newcomers is second overall pick Warren Kean, a punter/kicker from Concordia.

Kean went 20-for-32 last year, his longest from 44 yards.

Last October he set a record by connecting on nine field goals in a six-overtime game against the Saint Mary's Huskies.

Defensive back Jason Nedd (10th overall); defensive lineman Michael Jean-Louisof Laval (26th overall) and running back Calvin McCarty (27th overall) from Western Washington were the others to finalize their deals.
