Do the very top picks in the first round of the Draft make too much money for players who've never played a down in the NFL? Yeah. However, there is one aspect that could be argued as a good thing: It reduces the likelihood teams will be motivated to tank the season once they realize they're out of the playoff run and have a chance to get a really high pick. So basically it's further motivation for teams not to suck. The way the system is right now makes high picks kind of a combination punishment and reward for being bad.
No announcement yet.
There is a positive to the really high picks making obnoxious money.
