  1. the whole compensatory picks system is a sham , just rewards the greedy owners for not paying players that usually have earned a nice raise. They should be called disloyalty picks rather than compensatory picks.
    The only extra picks should be awarded for players teams lose to retirement or career ending injury . That would be a much more tenable way to “compensate ” teams for losses beyond their control. They have franchise and transition tags available if they don’t use any tags on a player and that player signs elsewhere why in the world should they be compensated.

  2. Just add one more round to the draft. The whole Compensatory Pick system just seems like a sham. It bails out teams and owners who are too cheap to pay their own players and rewards teams who game the system. Just add another round to the draft to account for these 32 picks.

    Funny how many Cowboys get considering they lost most trash players

    _______________________________________________________________________

    Someone signed their “trash” and They lost their entire secondary.

  4. It is totally ridiculous that Foles starts a huge part of the season and leads to a Super Bowl title, and the Chiefs only get a 6th rounder Comp pick in return. that is straight up BS

    ———–

    Maybe Andy should have kept and rolled with Foles instead of wasting a pick on Mahommes

  6. They need to get rid of comp picks. How do you make the super bowl and be rewarded comp picks? How do teams get 4 additional picks they’re able to trade for higher picks? The same teams qualify year after year for comp picks while teams that haven’t made the playoffs in decades NEVER be rewarded these comp picks. My beliefs comp picks are being used to keep the high market teams strong.

    What a Joke. Nick Foles winning super bowl MVP didn’t improve comp pick for my Chiefs at all.

    both of you need to learn how comp pics are awarded, its not on how many games/playoffs/SB a teams wins with their FA signings
    its

    how many players they lost to FA ( based on money) vs how many players they signed in FA (based on money)

    It’s totally ridiculous that you have no idea what compensatory picks are based on but are ripping the system anyway.

    Your point might suggest the Chiefs chose poorly. But do you you think its impossible to get a quality QB in the 6th round?

  10. Seems as if the NFL tweaked the formula this year – over the cap usually nails the comp picks, but they had. Green Bay and Baltimore getting 3rd round comps for TJ Lang and Rick Wagner respectively. GB got a 4th, but Baltimore only got a 6th! Makes me wonder if they added in the original round the player was selected in as a factor in determining the comp pick.

  11. It’s the system. Figure out a way to make it work for you. Everyone plays by the same rules. If you don’t like the rules, change them. It still, like everything else, comes down to evaluating talent. Is that 6th round pick going to be Tom Brady, or some guy that gets cut after one practice? The system really doesn’t create winners and losers. The management teams do.

  12. It seems to me these picks are not rewarded for cheap owners. Rather some teams know they get them and exploit that or they are incompetent as to how to manage a team. I understand some teams do have unexpected things happen to them and can see giving them some picks. My main argument is they should be for the later rounds and not start in the 3rd…

  13. what is the purpose of comp picks? If you can’t sign players on your team you’re rewarded a pick for another player. It’s all B.S. for fans to believe it’s a fair process. In reality this process is used to reward high market (Texas, New York, California…etc) teams that failed to make playoffs to become more competitive while teams like Detroit, Cleveland, Tampa..etc rewarded 1st round picks

    Bears lose Alshon Jeffrey and sign guys like Mike Glennon but they get no complimentary pick?
    ____________________________________

    The Bears lost 3 but signed 9. Take a look at OTC they have a cancellation chart

  15. I believe Reggie McKenzie since being GM with the Raiders has had only one compensatory pick way back in 2013. That is when in the 6th rd he took Stacy McGee. Now we are getting a compensatory pick for him in this years draft.Hopefully Reggie can find another player like Stacy in this draft. The more picks the better.

    Go Raiders!!!!

  16. Guys, you never want to be the one whining “it’s not fair”. Think of the teams that perpetually get high draft picks and do nothing with them. The Patriots have done what they have done at the bottom of each round and with the NFL having stolen about three numer one picks and a fourth rounder. Belichick has never cried not fair. He figures out how to use it to his advantage.

  17. Cincinnati Bengals are on record stating that they don’t sign other team’s free agents because they don’t want to lose the comp picks they get when their own players leave. It is a system that rewards the cheap owners.

    Great question !!
    It just so happens I skimmed through an article a few weeks back of how the NFL determines compensatory picks. It's not all that complicated but there are a lot of moving parts to it. Just to give you an idea, what draft pick number he was, playing time, salary, games started, production – grading, etc. It's a point value system.
