Guys, nothing will stop or encourage future busts like Russell from entering the league.
This cap will have nothing to do with the talent in scouting departments and team philosophy.
All this does is take money from draftees.
Unproven rookie's do not deserve the type of money they receive toward the top of the draft. The vetern NFL players agree with this statement. It is necessary to fix this issue.
In return, the rookie's get a shorter contract so that they will be able to hit free agency sooner, and get their big payday quicker than before. The 'busts' will get less up front money, and will leave the league quicker. It helps the NFL teams recover from their bad decisions/draft picks, and reallocate that money to the players that deserve it. It's a win/win for both the players and the teams.
