What does the money look like being the first overall pick in an NFL Draft?
It looks sort of like this.
ESPN reporter Field Yates reports former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s first contract will be set as a four-year deal, plus a fifth-year option.
When Lawrence eventually signs with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the value of the deal could be worth $36.7 million, including a singing bonus of $24.1 million.
Lawrence was taken as the first overall pick by the Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft, the first former Clemson player ever to be taken at No. 1 overall.
In case you are wondering, last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Joe Burrow, signed with Cincinnati for $36.2 million, including a $23.9 million signing bonus.
The value for the contract that Trevor Lawrence will eventually sign with the Jaguars has been set: the four-year deal (plus a fifth year option) will be worth $36,793,486, including a signing bonus of $24,118,900.
