The Arizona Cardinals have signed rookie quarterback Logan Thomas to a four-year contract, the team has announced.

The Virginia Tech product was a fourth round selection (120th overall) in this year's NFL Draft in New York City and should enter training camp as the number three signal-caller behind veterans Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.

Thomas threw for 53 touchdowns and 39 interceptions during his time at Virginia Tech, which makes for a fairly good representation of his overall accuracy issues.

Thomas said he’s already worked to correct some of the problems and rejects the notion that he’s a project at quarterback.

“I think I’m a lot more ready than people think,” Thomas said via “I think people labeled me as a project simply off stats, which I can understand what they see, what they think.”

The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder is participating in the team's OTA's and the Red Birds like his potential. He's not polished yet but could end up being Arizona's quarterback of the future.

You never know.

The Cards also announced that they have signed sixth round draft pick Walter Powell as well. The wide receiver matriculated at Murray State and is their career leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns but may have a hard time finding playing time in a receiving corps that includes Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Ted Ginn and third-round pick John Brown.

Powell's signing leaves just one 2014 draft pick unsigned – first-round selection Deone Bucannon of Washington State University.

The Cardinals begin their rookie mini camp tomorrow so in a perfect world they's love to have the strong safety in the fold by then. As we all know though, the NFL is far from a perfect world and sometimes first-round picks take a lot of time before inking their initial professional contract.

Stay tuned.
