Jacksonville is investing its future -- and quite a bit of money -- into its new offensive playmakers out of Clemson.

Spotrac estimates Trevor Lawrence will sign a slotted deal worth $36.7 million over four years for the No. 1 overall pick, while Travis Etienne will get $12.9 million over his rookie deal as the 25th selection. Both contracts include the option for a fifth year.

Lawrence is also projected a $24.1 million signing bonus, and Etienne will bring in a $6.7 million signing bonus.

Clemson's top picks last year were linebacker Isaiah Simmons in the 8th overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals and a $20.6 million deal ($12.6M signing bonus) and cornerback A.J. Terrell in a 16th overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons and a $14.3 million deal ($7.9M signing bonus).

The previous high on a Clemson rookie contract was Clelin Ferrell with a $31.4 million deal ($20.8 million signing bonus) in the 2019 draft by the Raiders.
