I wish all the best for Meachem in SD, but he'll undoubtedly learn fairly quickly the difference between Brees/Payton and Rivers/Turner offense, and it won't be a pleasant discovery.

And it's far too early to be talking about compensatory picks after only one day of FA period in the books. If the Saints are stripped of their draft picks - or at least some of them - they'll make most of their moves in the FA market and, therefore, they'll acquire more talent than they'll lose.

Compensatory picksIn addition to the 32 picks in each round, there are a total of 32 picks awarded at the ends of Rounds 3 through 7. These picks, known as "compensatory picks," are awarded to teams that have lost more qualifying free agents than they gained the previous year in free agency. Teams that gain and lose the same number of players but lose higher-valued players than they gain also can be awarded a pick, but only in the seventh round, after the other compensatory picks. Compensatory picks cannot be traded, and the placement of the picks is determined by a proprietary formula based on the player's salary, playing time, and postseason honors with his new team, with salary being the primary factor. So, for example, a team that lost a linebacker who signed for $2.5 million per year in free agency might get a sixth-round compensatory pick, while a team that lost a wide receiver who signed for $5 million per year might receive a fourth-round pick.

If fewer than 32 such picks are awarded, the remaining picks are awarded in the order in which teams would pick in a hypothetical eighth round of the draft (These are known as "supplemental compensatory selections").

Compensatory picks are awarded each year at the NFL annual meeting which is held at the end of March; typically, about three or four weeks before the draft.

I think this could net us a 3 or 4.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

I guess there's a theory of interchangeability lurking in the FO...
