  5. What first-round picks can expect

    Pat Yasinskas

    One of the best things about the NFL's collective-bargaining agreement that went into place last year is that rookie salaries are pretty much slotted. There's some room for negotiation, but not much. You can pretty much look at the contracts last ...
