Falcons' 2019 Draft class

How much will Falcons’ 2019 draft class make?

The seven college football players selected by the Falcons last weekend in Nashville, Tenn., are expected to sign deals in the coming months collectively worth nearly $40 million, which will amount to a $7.5 million cap hit

The 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement set up a value for every pick in the draft from No. 1 to the final overall selection. First-round picks typically receive four-year contracts that include a fifth-year team option. Undrafted rookies are limited to three-year contracts.
