No wonder I couldn’t figure it out by calculating back and forth then…

I thought our total bonus pool amount for pick 1-11 was
$8,884,600 ?

Draft Bonus Pool Remaining ($6,563,500 Pool) $8,884,600
Money Available For Over-Slot Deals $435,345

Can you explain those figures ? I know that the $8,884,600 are what we can spend on the first eleven picks (Rounds 1-10) without having to pay any penalties or forfeiting future draft picks.
So what are the other two figures about ?
And why are there $435,345 available for over-slot deals when we haven’t drafted/signed a single player yet ?
