IIRC, top LB (for 4-3) pay is 18M/year, which would equate to 90M over 5 years.
5/95 shouldn't shock anyone for a top 3 LB getting a new contract.
The bigger question, is he a top 3 LB? His PFF certainly isn't, and his stats were down last season. He'll still get the money though.
I love people doing mock drafts. But experience tells me trades happen. And not every GM would agree with other GMs (or fans either, from well informed to parrots...) and so 'interesting' to unbelievable things often happen at the draft. So I appreciate those folks that do them.
Tonight, I want to compare your top 12 to Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller's mock draft #4 top 12 (to me these are the 'game changers range) they had today. But they (as Kirwan was a front office guy) have trades in theirs. And this is how their top 12 draft played out-
Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller Mock draft #4 top 12-
Trevor Lawrence - Jags
Zac Wilson - Jets
Justin Fields - 49'ers
Kyle Pitts - Falcons (no QB, no trade!)
Penei Sewell - Bengals
Ja'Marr Chase - Dolphins
Trey Lance - WFT - via trade of 19, 51, 82 + Tim Settle to the Lions
Mac Jones - Bears via trade of 20, 52, 83, + Nick Foles to Panthers, also T. Bridgewater is traded from Carolina to the Broncos for their #40 pick
Jaylen Waddle - Broncos
Rashawn Slater - Chargers via trade of 13, 77
after top 10 then-
Christian Barmore - Giants
Patrick Surtain - Eagles
Interesting when different people and their thoughts of a teams best value while trying to fill needs comes into play. Thanks for your input.
