Hell yeah... the NFL really needs to follow the NBA's footsteps with the rookie minimum. Crabtree has done nothing to deserve over 20 guaranteed. That is a lot more than most established receivers in this league... Also, I might get some heat for this, he is far from a sure thing. Doesn't have the blazing speed and average size. Also, he did play in the spread. I hope he is great, but I don't feel comfortable paying him like he is a pro bowler while he is still limping around and hasn't played one snap...Bottom line is he was picked tenth, and there is a reason why nine teams passed on him.
