For a longer explanation of the cap holds section, visit the free agent cap holds page, which attempts to be comprehensive, concise and interesting. Failing that, it's hopefully at least one of the three.

The key thing to remember is that you don't actually PAY cap holds; they're just charged to your cap space to plug a loophole, and thus are integral to calculating cap space. For the full story, visit that link.

For a quick explanation of draft pick cap holds, visit the draft pick cap holds page. Unlike the free agency cap holds page, though, this one definitely whiffs on being "interesting." Also note that second round draft picks do not have cap holds.
