You hear someone make a comment almost every week about "how lame it is that an unproven guy with no NFL experience can make so much more $$$ than a proven vet."
Tebow and Leinert are the 2 names that really come to mind as players that would have made way more if they came out when they were hot. But there was no "rookie cap" in effect at the time.
Even if Luck is still the top prospect after another year in college (which could easily change with injury etc), he could really be leaving some dough on the table if the new CBA finally corrects this "loop hole" for unproven players.
i'm pretty sure if they did put on a cap it would stay pretty high. these high draft picks are typically the only thing that will sell tickets for bad teams. because of that, they need the contracts to stay pretty high to lure these guys out of college.

Only way that happens is harbaugh staying. Niners should be calling him and offering 10 million plus trading up for luck...

Unlikely to be the same team two straight years. NFC South is easily the worst division to be in, going up against Brees, Ryan and Freeman with lots of talent around all three.
Of course, the best division for Luck to go is ours, the worst in all of sports history. Carolina went .500 against the NFC West, 0-11 against the rest of the league. If Carolina were still in the NFC West, they probably would have won this division.
