5th year options-results for all 32 1st round from 2015

YANKEE28 : 5/3/2018 8:52 am
Attached is a website that tracked all the 2015 first rounders with full results.

In summary 20 first rounders had their 5th year option picked up.

12 first rounders (including Ereck Flowers) did not have their 5th year option picked up.

Through trades, the Patriots had gotten 2 of these first round players, giving them a total of 3 decisions that needed to made. The Patriots declined the 5th year option on all three.

There are many variables that can still happen. Nothing prevents a team from negotiating a new contract (more favorable) with a declined player in a mutually agreeable amount that is less than what the player would have received if the 5th year option was exercised. A perfect example is DT Malcolm Brown of the Patriots. He has been a solid player, but not solid enough to deserve what the 5th year of his time in New England would have cost the Patriots.

Basically, all 12 players that had the 5th year option declined are now in a "show me" situation for the 2018 season.

Next thing to watch will be whether Ereck Flowers shows up for the voluntary stuff, or waits for June 12th, when its mandatory.

Thank you ...the salary that these guys get is sickening.

No athlete is worth $10M a year, let alone $20M for the QBs ... sad state of affairs
That seems like a pretty underwhelming 1st round

It sucks that we picked Flowers over the best player in the whole round.
To relate this to Ereck Flowers and offensive tackles  
Ten Ton Hammer : 5/3/2018 9:15 am : link
Andrus Peat had his option picked up, however, he does not play tackle. He was moved to guard after that experiment went sour.

Cameron Erving did not get his option
Cedric Ogbuehi did not get his option
DJ Humphries did get his option picked.

I'm surprised

Peat's option was picked up. I don't watch every Saints' game but from stuff that I have read, he's not very good. Certainly not worth $9.6M.

He's solid at guard. It turned out to be his best position. Still would never have drafted him. Crazy out of shape at the draft.
So 37.5% of the 1st rd picks didn't make it to their extension year

including 30% of the top 10. Shows you what a crap shoot the draft is

I don't know if that's the case, or if it's whether teams are taking different approaches to the cap that I don't yet fully understand.

The NFL generates over nine billion dollars in revenue a year. Why shouldn't the players get their share?

It's not like owners are going to donate the excess to the poor.
Edge rusher Fowler...

If he puts together his third straight healthy year...with 2018 being a big season...he is going to get paid big time. Not sure that was a great move by JAC

Yeah, Spider is off target. What's sickening is that people are willing to be gouged at the gate and on their cable bill for these sports. That's the only reason it's a 9 billion dollar industry.
Very informative stuff

As always Yankee28. Thanks for compiling.
Imagine that...

A tackle making the successful transition to guard.
Many

Of these guys did not deserve to be picked up that were but Flowers started in many more games than almost this entire class yet he sucked. This is why itís very hard to judge these players just by the teams and situations they were placed in.

Yeah, that was the biggest surprise for me.

A number of teams declined but want to work out a longer term deal with lower cap hit
Shows you how picking for need

comes to bite you later. Not a good year to go OLine in RD1, but they absolutely needed to upgrade there and had to take a chance on what they thought was the best available.
