Those compensatory picks can come as high as the fourth round iirc. There is still some good value to be had there. It's funny that NE and other top contenders always receive numerous compensatory picks. That is how you manage the cap!

Edit: Loomis has a plan and it's effective. But it's more costly than the NE plan. I still believe Loomis is the man. He just makes the numbers work while Sean Payton calls the shots.

Actually, third round compensatory picks are awarded...

Baltimore has rec'd more compensatory picks than any other team - and it's not even close...

Ozzie Newsome was one of the first NFL executives to go through the league internship and likely received instruction on how to best achieve those picks...

Personally, I believe it's part Newsome and part NFL League Office favoritism toward Baltimore - and lately, after the Ray Rice elevator beat-down cover-up, it's certainly seems more of the later...

And no one really calls the league on this apparent bullshinski...

Don't believe teams should be rewarded or compensated for letting their veterans go...

As I said earlier, the draft has become such a big event unto itself, make the draft ten (10 ) rounds and eliminate compensatory picks...

...and let the best talent personnel evaluators win...

Re: No comp picks

Teams can start trading compensatory draft picks in 2017. Talk about stacking the deck for select clubs.

With Roger as the boss this turn into a mechanism to keep clubs in line.

Re: No comp picks

Again, it's not arbitrary or subjective
Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

Comp picks are a facet of the parity system. If a team loses 3 FA's without signing any, they get 3 picks in compensation.
