2014 NFL Draft Rookie Contract and Salary Cap Estimates
     


Updated March 28- The following are my contract estimates for the upcoming NFL draft. Due to the large increase in the salary cap this should be the first season where the NFL lifts the "salary freeze" on rookie bonus money. Please keep in mind that because this is the first year in which they are doing this I am working blind in making these allocations. The rookie pool for non-compensatory picks should increase by about $10.879 million for non-compensatory draft picks. If my theory is off I would anticipate the higher draft picks to cost a bit more than listed and the lower draft picks a bit less. By next year I should have a firm grasp as to how they exactly calcualte the pool.

The chart is self explanatory as to what is being shown, however please note that the "proven performance escalator" is not included in the 2017 or total cap value columns. For the most part the only leeway in compensation comes in round 3 where players seem to have much more power to negotiate better back end salaries which is why, in the past, a players selected with say the 10th pick in the round may earn less total compensation than a player selected with the 11th pick. This is the one round in the draft where I would say the players agent can play a role in the total value of the deal. Clicking on a team should take you to their individual cap page for pick by pick and yearly cap breakdowns. Overall team breakdowns are available by clicking this link. If you have any questions about the methodology used feel free to email me.
