The new CBA makes negotiating rookie contracts much simpler than in the past, especially in the early rounds, but likely in all rounds. From the 3rd Round down to the 7th Round, the base salaries start at $390,000 for all players and then bump up $90,000 per year (4-year contracts).

The base salary line is: $390,000, $480,000, $570,000, $660,000 - again for every player drafted in Round 3 through Round 7.

Bobby Wagner (Round 2) and Bruce Irvin (Round 1) also have 2012 base salaries of $390,000, like their other rookie peers, but then their base salaries climb at a steeper rate over years two through four.

Obviously, the signing bonuses drop as the rounds descend, with the big cliff being the difference between Irvin ($5.234M) to Wagner ($1.572M). Two other cliffs of note are between Wagner ($1.572M) to Russell Wilson ($619,000) and between Jaye Howard (Rd 4- $435,000) and Korey Toomer (Rd 5- $188,000).
