Now...for us idiots, what exactly does this consist of? I'm assuming it's based off how many picks (in each round) each of the teams have.....

The rookie pool is, essentially, a cap within a cap. It represents the maximum amount that a team can spend, in terms of salary-cap room, on its draft choices and undrafted rookies. A franchise's rookie allocation is part of, not in addition to, its overall spending limit.

Teams aren't required to spend their entire rookie pool. But agents normally seek about a 10 percent raise from the previous year's slot. The rookie pool increased about 5 percent from last year's league total.

i don't know the how the exact rookie pool is set for each team but i assume that the NFL determines the "going rate" for each draft pick that a team makes added together and then set the amount around that.

ie: 1st round - 15th pick went for xxx amount last year.... add a certain % increase for this year. Add all each team's picks up based on these averages and set the rookie pool numbers.

if a team has four 1st round picks their rookie pool increases accordingly.
