It seems to me that if the pick before you, and the pick after you have both signed contracts, then you'll probably end up with a deal somewhere in between. Apparently Ravens first-round pick Mark Clayton and his agent don't agree. Coach Brian Billick has made it clear that Baltimore's current offer is its best offer, no matter how long Clayton holds out. And Billick also gives a quick math lesson in case Clayton's agent is confused: "Take No. 21 and No. 23, add them up together and cut it in half...Anything beyond that, it's hard to understand."

Cooper's game has elements of Michael Crabtree and Roddy White. See what he must learn to fit into either one of these starters' development trajectory.
