As of August 9, 2007: The #1 pick in the draft, JaMarcus Russell, has not signed a contract. The #2 pick, Calvin Johnson, signed for 6 year deal for $64 million with $27.2 million guaranteed. That is an average of $10.66 million a year. The #32 and final first round draft pick, Anthony Gonzalez, signed a 5 year contract for $10.3 million with $5.4 million guaranteed. That is an average of $2.06 million a year.

Most all first round draft picks sign a 5 or 6 year contract. Since all 32 draft choices are not signed it is not possible to come up with an average but it would be safe to say an average of $5 to $6 million a year would be in the ballpark.

Top NFL draft picks can expect to earn $25 million to $30 million in multi-year deals worth $5 million to $6 million per year. The negotiated contracts of the top picks set the scale for lesser draft picks, so players selected as the third, fifth, 10th, etc., player in the first round often wait to see how much players selected ahead of them will earn before agreeing to contract terms.

A 4th round draft pick can range from $35,000 up to $100,000. It really depends on the GM and the players importance to the team after being evaluated.
