9 years at 7.8 million
Years 1-4 @ 12 million per
Years 5-9 @ 4.44 million per

Compensation per annual salary cap hit: $6,268,176 $7,835,219: Two 1sts, a 2nd and a 3rd round draft pick.
I believe they calculate compensation based on the first five years or the highest five which means compensation would be 4 1sts. That would certainly make Nashville consider if all they are getting is the compensation you suggested they match, keep him for a year and trade him for more than that. Even for 4 1sts they might do it.
