5 3 $212,000 $458,000 $548,000 $638,000 $728,000 $2,372,000
7 6 $63,732 $420,933 $510,933 $600,933 $690,933 $2,223,732
7 12 $60,256 $420,064 $510,064 $600,064 $690,064 $2,220,256
7 33 $45,896 $416,474 $506,474 $596,474 $686,474 $2,205,896

The actual figures of the contracts signed so far have not been made available.  But, if these are at least good ballpark figures, Ertz’s contract should be in the neighborhood of $5.3 or $5.4 million total with at least approximately $3.2 million guaranteed.

Last year’s No. 35 pick in the draft, Courtney Upshaw, signed a 4-year, $5,296,698 contract with $3,587,000 guaranteed.  Therefore, these figures shouldn’t be too far off the mark.

Last year’s fourth overall pick, Matt Kalil, signed a 4-year deal worth a total of $19,770,598 that was fully guaranteed.  Expect a similar deal for Lane Johnson, though the Eagles might try to get him to sign a contract that includes a fifth-year option.

First round draft picks are the only ones who can get the fifth-year option, all others are locked to four-year deals.

Five draft picks signed, three more to go…Johnson, Matt Barkley and Bennie Logan.
