    In past years this was an issue, but under the new CBA, rookie salaries are essentially slotted (for all intents and purposes).


    1 Landon Collins SS Alabama
    2 Byron Jones CB UConn
    3 David Johnson RB N Iowa
    4 Lyndon Trail OLB Norfolk St
    5 Nick Marshall CB Auburn
    6 Blake Bell TE Oklahoma
    7 Travis Raciti DE San Jose St

    Trade down w/ JAX:

    2 Maxx Williams TE Minnesota
    2 Nate Orchard OLB Utah
    3 Laken Tomlinson OG Duke
    3 Jaquiski Tartt SS Samford
    4 Ronald Darby CB Florida St
    5 Kurtis Drummond FS Michigan St
    6 Cam Thomas CB W Kentucky
    7 Malcolm Brown RB Texas

    My favorite quote form an article about Jarvis signing and Landry being the lone draft choice that is unsigned.

    Jones, a quarterback from Oklahoma taken in the fourth round, is expected to sign very soon. He and Jarvis Jones are not related.
    This made me rofl.gifLandry and Jarvis aren't related, really?

    Technically they could be brothers from other mothers and both took their dad's name. But given Jarvy's dark complexion, Landry's mom woulda probably had to be Albino for this scenario to work.

    Landry is more related to Jarvis' Subway food statue than Jarvis is, complexion-wise.
