I was looking at the number of first round picks left unsigned and was wondering why is that the case. Each year, it seems as though more and more first round picks are signing late. We already know the main reason for putting rookies on a slotted scale was to help teams avoid costly mistakes with the top 10 players selected. However, the by-product of that change was that players virtually have no reason to sign late. So my question to you all is why are there so many unsigned players right now if the majority of the terms have already been defined based upon draft position?
