Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn was the initial first-round draft pick to sign under the rookie salary system that was part of the NFL's new collective bargaining agreement, but others quickly followed suit. Under the new CBA, all first-round picks can have four-year contracts with a non-negotiable fifth-year option, although not all will receive it.

For a comparison on the contract numbers, take a look at the first-round signings from previous drafts:
