Note to writer- Malik Willis was actually taken in the 3rd round not the 4th fyi.
Funny how most are 2nd round picks????
It is due to a dispute over what portion of their rookie deal should be guaranteed. There’s an article on this site about it if you’re interested
“Funny how most are 2nd round picks” It seems as though a few picks need to sign first to establish value in the range, then other contracts fall into place. Hardly anyone has signed in the 33-49 range; 4 signed out of 17.
It’s because the Texans signed safety Jalen Pitre to three fully guaranteed years and that changed the landscape for everyone. Typically 2nd rounders sign four year deals with only two years guaranteed. Last year seven 2nd rounders had a partially guaranteed third year. But him being able to get the third year guaranteed is holding everyone else up because now they all want to match it.
Back in the day when the AFL and NFL were in a war to sign players the contracts were pretty straight forward. Now your dealing with a dozen or more clauses of offset language.
