2013 NFL Draft Rookie Contract and Salary Cap Estimates

Updated April 26- The following are my contract estimates for the upcoming NFL draft. These estimates are based on the assumption that the salary cap will not rise by enough to create a material impact on the NFL rookie pool and that the league will continue to institutue a salary freeze on signing bonus money, rather than reducing it which seems to be their right under the current CBA. I will update accordingly.

The chart is self explanatory as to what is being shown, howver please note that the "proven performance escalator" is not included in the 2016 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.
