RFA'S and their compensation...
LB Scott Fujita, Kansas City (compensation: fifth round): Surprising that the Chiefs made him the low-level tender because he is a quality defender, quick and active, and has started the past 2½ seasons. A player with compelling length (6-feet-5 and 250 pounds) and good movement skills. Over the last two seasons, in which he started every game, Fujita has 204 tackles, 8½ sacks and six passes defensed.

DT Rocky Bernard, Seattle (compensation: fifth round): Only three starts in 42 regular-season appearances, but just 25 years old and a very active inside player. Has 9½ career sacks and, while not a masher, can get through the gaps and occasionally attack the pocket. Visited with Houston officials last Friday and the Jets are said to be interested as well.

• RB Chester Taylor, Baltimore (compensation: sixth round): The caddie for Ravens star Jamal Lewis for three seasons and very productive as a third-down back or spot starter. Has seven career starts, four of them in 2004, and he averaged 93.3 yards in those four starts last season, including a 139-yard outing. Also had a career-best 30 receptions for 184 yards in '04.

FS Brian Russell, Minnesota (compensation: none): Led league with nine interceptions in 2003 but had only one pick last season. Vikings coaches didn't think he was tough enough and that he tackled poorly in space. But as a two-year starter, and a defender who gets around the football, he certainly is worth a look.

• RB Verron Haynes, Pittsburgh (compensation: fifth round): Has never started a game and is probably a player destined to be a career backup, but a very good one. Can do a lot of things for a team, including playing on special teams, maybe returning kickoffs. Was the Steelers' third-down back for much of 2004, and is an accomplished receiver, but also averaged 4.9 yards per carry.

• CB Kevin Thomas, Buffalo (compensation: sixth round): Used as a "nickel" corner by the Bills and that is probably where his future lies. Has just one career interception, but his size (6-0, 182), speed and overall football awareness will earn some interest.

This is just a partial list here's the link to the rest:

i think it would be worth it..i mean mostly in those rounds you get projects-atleast with these guys you know what your getting and they have quicker learning curves.

RFA'S and their compensation...
He\'s not on there, but Akin Ayodele only has a 3rd rounder on him. He would be a major upgrade at SLB.
