Slot for the 13th pick last year was estimated at $1.656m. The recommendations are reportedly higher this year but players have been generally signing for less than last year.
The closest pick to #13 that has signed is Jake Skole at #15. He got $1,557,000.
Like you say though he could be looking for top 5 money (>$2.5m), or at least something in the $2m range.
Who knows though, I haven't read anything on the negotiations or Sale's bonus demand.
