Once the mayhem of the NFL Draft is over, general managers and agents of the various players begin one of the tougher parts of an NFL offseason...getting their first round draft pick to sign on the dotted line.
Getting players to sign is an extremely difficult task, as most players wait to see what contracts other players have already signed, as to give a clear picture how much money each selection should make. This is called slotting, and the dollar amount slightly drops for each pick that passes.
Last year, Matthew Stafford agreed to terms on a contract before the NFL Draft took place, signing with the Detroit Lions for a record six-year contract for roughly $41 million.
All contract updates and numbers are based on USA Today, and updated as of this morning.
