In the not too distant future, the Packers will be in a different position, but a little less than a month into free agency they rank seventh in the NFL in available salary cap space.

Last week, 13 teams had more than $10 million in cap space.  As of today, that number is down to 11. Still, this means that more than one third of the league has plenty of spending room. They are Jaguars ($28.3 million); Browns ($27.2 million); Buccaneers ($26.3 million); Bengals ($25.9 million); Eagles ($25.7 million); Packers

One question: It's been said $10 million cap space is necessary to sign draft picks. If 2/3 or more of the teams don't have $10 million, what can they do?

I read something like $5 million.

I don't think the Colts hit 10 million with having the #1 pick and a QB at that. Packers last year were about 5 million, assuming all picks make the team.

And next to that, only the top 53 salaries count towards the cap, so while you do go up a bit, especially with your early selections, you bump off a bit of your lowest earning players, as well.
