Moments ago, the Packers announced the signing of first-round pick NT B.J. Raji. Terms of Raji’s contract were not disclosed by the team.

The Packers will place Raji, the 9th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, on the active non-football injury list.

Raji’s signing leaves four first-round picks unsigned: Eugene Monroe (Jacksonville), Andre Smith (Cincinatti), Michael Crabtree (San Francisco) and Aaron Maybin (Buffalo). NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora believes the Jaguars and Monroe are close to completing a deal.

Here’s a list of all the contracts signed by the first-round picks.

The Packers also announced it placed rookie wide receiver Patrick Williams on injured reserve.
