The number 1 pick this year should get about 4 years 23 million completely guaranteed. The split between salary and signing bonus is always negotiated, but it's generally about 50/50.

Yeah, but some guys just don't think ahead like you're doing here. They get that 1st contract, get a signing bonus, and it goes to their heads. Clowney strikes me as the kind of guy where that would happen. He will show up his rookie year, decline years 2&3, then wake up in year 4 when he's due for a new contract. It's the Albert Haynesworth model.

I could see him end up like Mario Williams too. An athletic freak of nature, but lacks the heart and competitive drive to be the best he can be.
