LKelley, I got your answer

as to why it would be cheaper for a team at the top to draft a RB and pay them their bonus and such than it is to trade for an Edge James or Shaun Alexander. From Dr. Z:
Russ of Santa Clara, Calif., and thanks for you know what, asks about the rookie salary structure. Last year $120,800,000 went into the NFL's rookie pool, which comes out to $3.775 million per team, prorated as to how many draft choices it had. Bonuses and salary are averaged out, over the life of the contract, the way they do the salary cap. This year the rookie pool is expected to go up around four and a half percent. Many thanks to the NFL's Joel Bussert and Greg Aiello for the complete figures.
