Falling in draft cost Maclin $24 million
When all is said and done, the price Maclin paid for running his 40-yard dash a couple of tenths of a second slower than Darrius Heyward-Bey, the seventh overall selection of the Raiders. is about $24 million, including $14 million guaranteed. Had Maclin been faster, he'd have been a Raiduh, people.
And exactly who was it that said the 40-yard dash is overrated?
Wide receiver Heyward-Bey inked a five-year $38.25 million pact with $23.5 million guaranteed according to reports.
Tight end Brandon Pettigrew, the 20th pick, signed a five-year pact with the Lions worth $14.6 million, including $9.4 million guaranteed.
Maclin will fall somewhere in between, although a lot closer to Pettigrew.
