Little I am not sure about. A lot depends on whether we have a 1C good enough to take the oppositions prime defensive players away from him, letting him go as a 2C and have a bit of an easier time of it. Maybe little gets 3-4 years averaging $4m/year, anything more than that and I think you see what he can get via a trade.
Agreed on all points.
Wheeler would make a great team captain and Bogo looks like he's on the cusp. Neither looks like they have any recurrent injury problems, so locking them up long-term at this point would be a very smart move.
