Here is what the 22nd and 25th 1st round contracts looked like last year-FYI..Give us an idea of what they will be getting paid.:

2009-22nd Pick P. Harvin

8/2/2009: Signed a five-year, $12.05 million contract. The deal includes $8.425 million guaranteed. Another $2.2 million is available through incentives. 2009-2013: Under Contract, 2014: Free Agent

2009-25th Pick Vontae Davis

7/31/2009: Signed a five-year, $10.25 million contract. The deal contains $7.345 million guaranteed, including a $500,000 signing bonus and Davis' first three base salaries. Another $3.05 million is available through incentives. 2009: $310,000 (+ $815,000 roster bonus), 2010: $395,000 (+ $4.045 million option bonus), 2011: $676,250, 2012: $957,500, 2013: $786,250, 2014: Free Agent

If we would've stayed at 11 here is what Maybin got last year-

8/21/2009: Signed a five-year, $17.6 million contract. The deal includes $15 million guaranteed. Another $7.4 million is available through incentives based on playing time and sacks. 2009-2013: Under Contract, 2014: Free Agent

Do you think either Thomas or Tebow will hold out?

Thomas, I'm not sure. It depends on what the picks around him do, certainly, but I think lower draft picks are less likely to hold out.

Tebow, I would be almost certain will not. It just seems like this guy doesn't care one whit about the money, and just wants to get down to playing football.

He's so grateful to McDaniels, and so eager to start proving him right and everybody else wrong, that I think he'll sign the first fair-value deal we push in front of him.

Remember Tebow will get the QB premium, you should look at Brady Quinns contract and add about 33% to all numbers except years then you get a rough idea of what Tebow will get. Thomas will what Harvin got plus about 10%.

I'm fine with giving him a 33% percent boost, but I want a extra year. If it's going to take two years redshirt, then I want a extra year of prep, before we have to pony the huge bucks.

That being said, these numbers are just south for what Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler are going to be earning - per year.

The only scenario I can see being a mess is if the owners decide unilaterally to pull down the percentage for draft players.

Edited - of course, thanks to the Patriots, they no longer allow 6 year contracts for players outside the first 16. Doh.

Neither will hold out, I am thinking that Tebow might be the first 1st rounder to sign a contract.

Tebow already said on an interview with Dmac and Al that he won't hold out, just wants to play football and will let his agent handle it

he may be one of the first players to sign like CBF just mentioned, I don't think he will allow his agent to keep him from playing which is pretty refreshing actually

And I believe the FO will put up a fair deal contract for both. No behavioral clauses needed.....

Exactly. He's the worst nightmare for all agents with 1st round clients.

Chances Tebow will hold out are ZERO ... the NULL SET.

Tebow said on The Fan that he doesn't care about material possesions so a holdout won't happen.
