In 2007 JaMarcus Russell, the first overall draft choice, signed a 6 year, $68 million deal with $31-$32 million guaranteed. Second overall choice Calvin Johnson signed a 6 year, $64 million deal with $27.2 million guaranteed. The difference was $4 million over the life of the 6 year contract and $4 million in guaranteed money.
