It looks like this year's compensatory draft picks will be announced next week according to the San Diego Union-Tribune and ProFootballTalk. Usually this is done at the owners' meetings.

Look up a guy named AdamJT13's blog if you want an early peek. I haven't checked if he has done it for this year but he is usually really accurate. His picks are just about always on with the odd pick being a round off because of where the NFL sets its cutoff points. He had one significant mistake a year or two ago because of a little known ruling and it was actually a shock to see him miss that pick by two or three rounds. That's how accurate he's been.

*edit nm, just went to his blog and he isn't doing it this year. disappointing, but it is time consuming and there was a chance that there would be no comp picks this year.

Comp picks should be announced today. I will keep my eyes peeled and post them when I see them unless someone beats me to it.

The compensatory picks usually put the total number around 255-ish. They put the first three rounds at or just short of 100. I have been waiting for the comps so I can post a four or five round mock on here. The lockout delayed the announcement by a few days.

The lockout also prevented the Sunday/Monday night schedules from coming out. They will probably skip that and go right to the full schedule, which will come out in mid-April. There will be a thick cloud over schedule day this year because we don't know how many of those games will be played, if any. Hopefully NFL doomsday won't happen.

Well I don't think Moss or Maroney are going to net us much, Ben Watson had a pretty good year for Cleveland though. I don't think we will get anything before the fifth round.

The compensatory picks usually put the total number around 255-ish.

The total number of compensatory picks is fixed, actually. It's always 32. If you don't award 32 picks according to the formula, then additional "supplemental compensatory" picks are appended to the end of the seventh round, after the actual supplementary draft picks.

The draft is supposed to be 256 picks, every year. Though this number decreases due to supplemental draft picks, NFL penalties, etc.

Well I don't think Moss or Maroney are going to net us much, Ben Watson had a pretty good year for Cleveland though. I don't think we will get anything before the fifth round.

Moss and Maroney were both traded, which means that the Patriots will receive nothing in terms of compensatory picks for them. Compensatory picks are only for players who leave in free agency due to the expiration of their contracts. You don't get them for players you trade or players you cut.

What will Aaron Kampman net us?
I was hoping for a 3rd but after the injury, 4th may be the best case scenario. Not entirely sure how the process works...

Wait several hours and you will know. The formula is not released to the public.

I'm hearing that Carolina got a 3rd.
Green Bay and Tennessee got 4ths.
Baltimore got two 5ths.
Everything else is a 6th or 7th.

The Saints actually got an extra pick this year :) And Houston will finish out the Draft picking Mr. Irrelevant.

Getting an extra third round pick is big for Carolina since they don't have their second.

They hold 98 and 99, separated by about 10 hours. It's not as good as 33, but it's something.

I'm surprised New England didn't get anything for losing Ben Watson, who signed a reasonably large contract and had a nice year. The only free agent they signed to my knowledge that made the opening day roster was Alge Crumpler, while they lost Watson and Jarvis Green, Green also having signed a $20 million contract.

HOw did the Bucs not get anything for losing Antonio Bryant? THe Bengals gave him a huge deal to come to Cincy and the Bucs had franchised him the season before... just like Carolina did with Peppers. This makes no sense. Does anybody know the reason here?

Sean Jones?

It doesn't take much to cancel your compensatory picks. The franchise tag is meaningless in the formula.

I believe they base it on production for the new team as well. Since Bryant never played a game for the Bengals in 2010 (or in the NFL for that matter) the league took that into account.

The 49ers now have the most picks in the draft with 12. I expect Trent Baalke to wheel-and-deal.

Don't forget, compensatory selections can't be traded.

Of course, but the other 10 selections certainly can. Appreciate the reminder, however.

it is big for them but it's also a garbagey system

how can a team reasonably expect to replace Julius Peppers an all pro DE with the 97th overall selection?

better off spending money than waiting for these paltry picks.

The system never was to replace lost talent with equal talent. It was part of a compromise when the players received partial free agency that they have now instead of true free agency. The players wanted a much shorter draft and the owners wanted to keep the draft longer. The cheaper owners cried even harder. The owners lost five rounds of the draft but essentially got one back with the comp picks with the argument that these picks would help the teams hurt most by free agency. The idea was that teams that wouldn't/couldn't compete in free agency would have a chance to recoup their losses by building through the draft and the comp picks were a part of the equation.
