Yeah if all six of our players make the team then the full $3,919,615 counts against the cap. Till they do I believe only the signing bonus count against the cap. That means the 6 rookies will take up 1,489,615 against the cap at first.

The rookie pool is an addition to the salary cap, it is allocated each year based on which draft picks each team holds and is a way to limit teams from signing rookies to outrageous contracts or from soaking up every undrafted free agent. All rookies, drafted and undrafted must have a total salary cap hit less than the rookie pool alloted for that team.

The rookie pool is not the cap figure. The salary cap during the offseason is calculated as the sum of the salary cap figures of the top 51 earning players on the roster - by the time of the draft all teams should have more than 51 players on the roster each earning at least veteran minimum salary. When the rookies sign their contracts they will bump some of these veterans out of the top 51, so the net cap charge of the signing the rookies is the difference between what the players who got bumped out of the top 51 and the rookies make. On average a veteran makes a minimum of 470k, and if you have 8 rookies who will make more than that, that means that you can subtract 8*470k= 3.8m from the cap before you add on what the rookies make (in this case about 5 million), so the net cap charge is only 1.2 million.

If, as some think possible, The Broncos trade out of the first, does their first pick equal the actual round the player was picked? That could save at least four million.

They have no business trading down until they learn how to get value for their pick.

You do know that NFL teams don't print off draft value charts right?

What does that have to do with anything?

Last years trade downs were a joke and you do not need a chart to see that.

I tend to agree. The NFL draft is full of good players from top to bottom, i kinda hate giving up value just to swap picks in a round.

Denver trading down wasn't a big deal -- it was using the ammo they got in the trade down to trade back up which miffed me.
