    Interesting numbers for a Seventh Round pick at a position that is pretty stacked, no? Aren't those guys usually one year deals?

    I read Ebner in the first moment and was stoked...I'm much more intrigued by him, than Ebert.

    Wow. Just for comparison, Aaron Hernandez went at 113 in the 4th round in 2011 and got 2.378M over 4 years. Ebert's deal sounds more like a late 4th/5th round kind of deal.

    Still shake my head every time I see how low AH was picked. Probably a lot of people in the NFL do too.

    I don't know why, but I REALLY like this pick. I just have a feeling that Ebert is gonna be a really productive NFL player one day. Love the speed, excellent hands, I know every white guy who plays the slot will be compared to Welker, especially guys who wind up on the Pats, but there is something about this guy that screams warrior, and possibly a very Welker like player. If he works hard enough to justify his contract, he could be a productive slot or deep threat for the Pats. If he can be a warrior on the special teams, it wouldn't shock me if he makes the team. Call me crazy, but I have a feeling Ebert is more than a throw a dart at the board and see who's there. The Pats scouted up this guy.

    No.

    Every rookie drafted in the BB era has gotten at least a four-year deal, with the odd exception of sixth-round pick Justin Rogers in 2007, who signed a three-year deal.

    Moreover, the new CBA mandates that all rookies get an initial four-year deal.

    The four years is fairly irrelevant. All that matters right now is the $48K bonus. I assume that's pretty slotted.

    And I assume that he doesn't beat out Stallworth, Gonzalez, Ochojohnson, Gaffney, Edelman, and Slater. So the Pats will probably eat that, and hope to sign him to PS. If he beats them out, they have a very cheap alternative slot guy.

    He's a Welker like player who has the height and speed to play outside and be a Mike Wallace type player if you want him to be...Welker can sometimes be a little restricted as a split end because he lacks great speed and height. I think Ebert came in at 5'11'' but a tall 5'11''. Obviously not elite height but it doesn't matter so much if you ahve the speed.

    He'll make the roster...he's a better athlete than Edelman, has STs factor and is a better WR than Edelman.

    No. They are typically 3-4 year deals. And the minimum salary numbers are only 90K less than that.

    No, it isn't. It's only 90K above the minimum salaries on a 4 year deal.

    League Minimums:
    Rookie - 390K
    1year - 465K
    2 year - 540K
    3 year- 615K
    4 - 6 year- 700K
    7-9 - 825K
    10+ - 925K

    So, Ebert got the league minimums and a 90K worth of bonuses..

    This is kind of OT, but it's just too good to pass up:

    Ohhh all right.

    I guess I figured that with the ease that those late rounders come and go on most teams that it is usually a smaller deal.

    That would actually make sense, if he was traded to the Lions. :)

    Comparing contracts for 3rd through 7th rounders between the 2010 draft and 2012 draft is not as easy as it looks. One of the big wins for the NFLPA that benefitted the majority of its members was a significant increase in minimum salaries. For instance the rookie minimum salary this year is $390,000, while in 2010 it was $325,000. Future year minimum salaries are also correspondingly higher.

    Structurally, my bet is Ebert's contract is a signing bonus of $48,000, 4 years of minumum salaries, a few small workout bonuses and two cups of coffee guaranteed if/when he gets cut and before he is brought back to the practice squad.
