After hearing his name called first during the 2017 NFL draft on Thursday night, new Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is set for an estimated $30 million raise.

According to Spotrac, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft will earn a projected signing bonus of around $20.16 million and a contract valued at $30.28 million over the next four years. That’s an increase from last year’s top selection, Jared Goff, who signed a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams worth $27.98 million with a signing bonus of $18.52 million.

Here’s a complete look at what the first 32 picks in this year’s draft are estimated to make, and what kind of hit they’ll have on their team’s 2017 cap:

32 NO 8,860,569 4,584,050 1,611,013

One thing to watch will be players who slip and just how much money they end up losing. One of the most publicized draft falls last year was Laremy Tunsil, a potential Top-5 selection who ended up going No. 13 to the Miami Dolphins. He still got a $7.26 million signing bonus and $12.46 million contract, but that’s quite the decrease from No. 5 pick Jalen Ramsey, who collected more than double the signing bonus ($15.18 million) and a $23.35 million contract.

Top 20 is also an important cut-off, as being drafted within those first 20 selections basically assures a rookie of receiving a fully-guaranteed four-year contract.
