It depends, as a rookie you don't need it like before as there is a rookie pool that is set, however, how many have the time to read all the loop holes. You don't know if you really going to last so you want every penny you can get. At the end of the career, you can figure your worth. However, when you are inbetween, like Dashon was, you want a professional, who can get you the most money up front, with reachable elevators. Remeber these kids are not all business majors or accounts or lawyers.
I've seen a lot of smart people still get messed up with contracts. Especially if you got a guy like the 49ers Paraag, he will do whats right, but don't think he wouldn't eat you alive in the 49ers favor.
