The 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone. Now that teams have claims on players they’ve selected throughout the three-day spectacle in Las Vegas, they’ll now head to the negotiating table to hammer out their rookie contracts. 

Of course, these negotiations are unlike those from over a decade ago when Sam Bradford was inking a $78 million deal with $50 million guaranteed after being the first overall pick. Now, thanks to a new CBA, rookie contracts are a lot more tied to the player’s slotted draft position and there really isn’t too much to be negotiated. That said, it is notable when the two sides do come to terms on what is a fully guaranteed deal for nearly all first-rounders. 

The first domino to fall among the top picks in this year’s class came in Green Bay, where the Packers were able to ink one of their two first-rounders in Georgia defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt

Below, you’ll find our tracker that includes each first-round pick and whether or not they’ve put pen to paper on their rookie contract. If they have, you’ll also find the terms of their first professional contract in the NFL.
