I mean $750,000 is still a s**t load of money and it would take your average person over 5 years to make at the least!
1st rounders: $1,000,000 - $750,000
2nd rounders: $750,000 - $650,000
3rd rounders: $650,000 - $575,000

5th rounders: $500,000 - $450,000
6th rounders: $450,000 - $400,000
7th rounders: $400,000 - $375,000
Undrafted Rookies: $375,000 - $300,000
With all due respect. there is already a rookie cap in place that basically looks similar to this chart. Each team is awarded a certain amoutnt of money for their draft picks. The most Crabtree's contract can be is 1.3ish this year. The problem lies in the Gauranteed money.
You come up with a formula for that and you're on to something.
You are correct in that is the most Crabtree's contract can be...but it's not because of the rookie cap the nfl sort of has now....
It was my impression that a team has a certain amount they designate to spend on signing draft picks. However, how the team divides up the money is up to the front office. Meaning, Crabtree's contract can only be that amount for this year because they already spent the other draft money on the other picks. So they are stuck signing him to the amount of money they still have left over in the rookie draft fund.
