It’s no secret that first round draft picks get paid serious money, and this year was no exception. The 2021 NFL Draft added 32 new players to the league in the first round, and even the 32nd pick is set to make $11.2 million. Each rookie gets a 4 year contract, and the total contract value is split out between a signing bonus and yearly salaries. The difference of a few picks can mean the difference in millions of dollars in contract value for the rookies. We compiled a list of all the first round picks and their respective contract sizes below, ordered from lowest to highest pick. Are any of them being overpaid? We’ll see in a few months!
