I think those numbers a little high. Last year's #10 got a max potential $15 mil contract--don't see #27 getting it this year. Look for deals around $16.5 for Dunta and $9.7 for Babin, i.e. about a 10% increase from last year.

From last year:

Terrell Suggs #10--5 year deal

Quote:
The initial signing bonus for the contract is $2 million and the second-tier option bonus is $4.25 million. There is also a guaranteed minimum playing time incentive of $1.05 million. So the combined bonuses, fully guaranteed, total $7.3 million and will be paid out by the end of Suggs' second season in the league, which is a very favorable distribution schedule.

In addition, the base salary for 2003 is $1.1 million, and the base value of the contract is $10.09 million. Suggs can earn up to an additional $5 million in "escalators," which are largely based on his sack totals.
Larry Johnson #27--7 year deal, voidable upon condition to 5 years

Quote:
The former Penn State star was the 27th player chosen overall, after Kansas City orchestrated a trade with Pittsburgh to drop back 12 spots in the round. The Chiefs are scheduled to report to training camp on Saturday.

The contract is worth $8.847 million and includes a signing bonus of $3.31 million. If Johnson reaches certain playing time benchmarks, the contract voids to five years and is worth $6.7 million. The signing bonus represents a 10.3 percent increase over the upfront money received by last year's 27th choice, cornerback Mike Rumph of San Francisco.

The base salaries are $452,000 (2003), $515,000 (2004), $628,000 (2005), $741,000 (2006), $854,000 (2007), $967,000 (2008) and $1.08 million (2009). There are workout bonuses of $50,000 each for 2004-2009.
Will be very surprised if the Texans sign Dunta to less than a 7 year deal and Babin to less than 5 years.
