    • If a team spends 0-5% over their draft pool, they get taxed 75% on the overage. If they spend more than 5%, they start losing future draft picks, along with taxes.

      The first number is how much they have left in their pool, without going over and paying a tax.

      The second number is how much they have left without going beyond 5% over their pool and losing a draft pick in the future.

    • I’d assume he’d want slot as it was a little fortuitous for the Buccos that he made it to them but at the same time there is much upside to going to college and passing up $3M

      Any idea on which other picks the xtra $ could be used towards?

      • meant “isn’t much upside”… anybody know much about Borden’s or Buckner’s potential $ demands? just a quick look at the list and they seem like 2 of the obvious ones wanting more than slot/$100K
