The issue is that if you fail to sign a player, you lose whatever the slot amount would be, it cannot be applied elsewhere. So I'm confused how this 10th round pick helps at all.


Yeah, this lines up with what I was thinking. Isn't the only way you can save money is by going after college seniors? Guy's that generally have no choice but to sign or sit out a full year. Sure hope I somehow got that part of this wrong.

That tenth rounder has a cap of $125,000 not that I see it as "wiggle room"

Yeah, I hope the quote was just to make the other guys feel better, and therefore more likely to sign under slot (except for those 1 or 2 they intended to go over for).

...hoping to find some new information on our draftees today. I look at this draft and think, our staff may need to rethink how to work Bud's game.

The Sleeper – Christian Walker (Baltimore): I’m not personally the biggest fan of Walker and his pro prospects, but he’s a flat out winner that can perform in the biggest of spots, and that could play well in pro ball.
