Clemson's four players that were drafted in the first two rounds of the NFL draft are projected to sign contracts totaling over $25 million and also receive signing bonuses over $11 million.

First round draft pick Shaq Lawson is expected to sign a contract worth over $10 million.

According to Forbes, the NFL Rookie Compensation Pool puts limitations on the total amount teams can spend on a rookie’s first year salary and the total 4-year contract.

Draft picks in the first two rounds are also much more likely to have their salaries guaranteed.

Clemson is expected to have several more draft picks selected in the final five rounds on Saturday.
