Lawrence’s contract will surpass that of last year’s No.1 pick Joe Burrow, who signed a four-year deal worth $36,190,137 with a signing bonus of $23,880,100. Burrow’s contract was also fully guaranteed and that should undoubtedly be the case for Lawrence, too.

When breaking down Lawrence’s signing bonus, it will be prorated over his four year deal in increments of $6,029,744. Per Over the Cap, he’s projected to have base salary amounts of $660,000, $2,332,436, $4,004,872, $5,677,308, respectively, over the course of his four-year contract that has a fifth-year option.

The last three first overall picks signed their deals anywhere between early May (in Kyler Murray’s case) or late July in the case of Baker Mayfield and Burrow. With that being the case, Lawrence will have his name on the dotted line relatively soon for the Jags and then fans can shift their focus to the football side of things.
