Post COMP picks for the draft awarded
A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2005 NFL Draft have been awarded to 14 teams, the NFL announced.

Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in a year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced will supplement the 223 choices in the seven rounds of the 2005 NFL Draft (April 23-24). This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

The following 2005 draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council:

Round Choice/Overall Selection Team:

3 33-96 Tennessee
3 34-97 Denver
3 35-98 Seattle
3 36-99 Kansas City
3 37-100 New England
3 38-101 Denver
4 33-134 St. Louis
4 34-135 Indianapolis
4 35-136 Tennessee
5 33-169 Carolina
5 34-170 New England
5 35-171 Carolina
5 36-172 Philadelphia
5 37-173 Indianapolis
5 38-174 San Francisco
6 33-207 Carolina
6 34-208 Dallas
6 35-209 Dallas
6 36-210 St. Louis
6 37-211 Philadelphia
6 38-212 Oakland
6 39-213 Baltimore
6 40-214 Oakland
7 33-247 Philadelphia
7 34-248 San Francisco
7 35-249 San Francisco
7 36-250 St. Louis
7 37-251 St. Louis
7 38-252 Philadelphia
7 39-253 Tampa Bay
7 40-254 Seattle
7 41-255 New England

---------------------------------------------------

I thought for sure the Lions would receive the first comp pick at the end of the third round for the loss of McMike! :lol:

So teams get rewared for mismanaging their cap?

We lost McMahon, give us picks!!! Haha.

I think it's stupid that picks are rewarded like this. So because Tennessee is dumb and had to dump a number of quality players, they get a solid 3rd round pick? Wow.

I believe compensatory picks are awarded from the previous years free agency, not this years. Free Agency isn't over, so how can picks be awarded based on free agency losses/gains? The picks are based on 2004 free agency, not 2005.

How did the Cowboys get two sixth round picks for two backup players?

Teams only get awarded picks based on free agents signed by other teams, not for players that are cap casualties. Any player released by the team is not part of the equation. Also, the players gained in free agency is compared against the players lost. Last year we signed Woody, Bryant, Loverne, Mirer and Streets as unrestricted free agents. Marion and Alexander were cap cuts, I believe. We didn't really lose anybody worthwhile so we didn't get any picks.

My point was that teams who cannot afford to resign free agents like Green Bay and all the guys they lost to free agency are a result of the CAP. So now losing two top tier linemen will merit some quality picks in the future? To me the draft should simply be based upon results.

I think the comp picks are meant to help teams who can't resign free agents because the grass is greener on the other side, like someone leaving a bad baseball team for the Yanks. Helping teams with a mismangaed Cap is an unintended consequence. They don't want an evil empire in football.

I don't see one team on there who has experienced anything nearly as consecutively terrible seasons as Detroit or Arizona. Yes, San Fran has been down a bit and so has Oakland but they were also recently in the playoffs.

New England is getting 3rd, 5th, and 7th round comp picks???? Does anyone else think this is absolutely absurd?

They're labeled as a dynasty and are back to back SB champs yet they still get more picks? Who cares who they lost to FA, they're back to back SB champs!

It's not about who's good or who's bad. It's about the level of talent a team lost versus the level of talent they gained.

I wouldn't call a late third round pick a quality choice. Ask Favre if he'd rather have a late third round draft pick or Rivera and Wahle back. You know what that answer will be. Cap strapped teams usually end up cutting rather than electing to not sign free agents. Look at Tennessee, they had to cut more players than let go to other teams in free agency. And usually the players a team loses are more valuable and get paid more than most. Therefore some third or fourth round picks added aren't really that much of a repayment. And if GB or Tennessee lose players because they don't properly manage their cap, who's to blame?

Either way, you can get quality depth with a third rounder. NE, for example, didn't mismanage their cap, they just let FAs walk that they didn't need or found cheaper alternatives to.

What about people who were on IR the whole year and were FAs the next year? Does that decrease the quality of the of the pick the teams gets? If Ty Law's contract was to expire this year and he wasn't released, would he warrant a 3rd round pick or a 6th rounder?
