Calculating the salary cap hits for the Raiders rookie draft class.

Even since before the draft occurred last April, questions had arisen about how much the Raiders would need to have available to them for signing their draft class.

One could speculate prior to the draft what kind of range the Raiders would need to prepare themselves to spend on this year's class but until they actually made the picks, there was no way to know for sure.

The speculated figure changed quite a bit considering the team entered the draft with seven picks and had ten before all was said and done. The one trade that affected they draft class spending the most was the deal they struck with the Dolphins to move from the third overall spot down to pick 12 while adding a second round pick. The Raiders were initially without a round two selection as part of the Carson Palmer trade (the one that brought him to the Raiders, not the one that sent him to the Cardinals).

Now, according to the salary cap gurus over at overthecap.com, we have a pretty good idea of what the Raiders will be spending on their rookie class. Here are the expected cap hits of the Raiders rookies:

1 (12). D.J. Hayden -- $1.877 million

2 (43). Menelik Watson -- $872k

3 (68). Sio Moore -- $578k

4 (114). Tyler Wilson -- $518k

All remaining rookie base salaries fall below the top 51 salaries on the team and therefore don't count against the 2013 salary cap figure but will carry $131k in total prorated bonus money.

Total 2013 rookie cap figure -- $3.975 million
