        I doubt Hixon and Blackburn will net us anything.

          The only one that I think could net us anything might be Osi.
          One of these teams is not like the others

            well it depends who we signed to replace them. im not sure if a trade counts with Beason because that would cancel out him and blackburn. but we replaced hixon with louis murphy, and believe it or not hixon with his 7 rec for 55 yards and 1 td out produced murphy with his 6 rec for 37 yards and a td lol so that will probably be a real late 7th. Bennett will get us a nice pick because he severly outproduced Myers. and same for Osi. we should get 3-4 picks with bennett mayvbe landing us a 5th round comp

              it doesnt work that way lol. There are only 32 compensetory picks awarded in total. We'd likely only get 1. MAYBE 2 if we're lucky. But even for Osi, we're only talking like 4th, maybe 5th round.

                  We could use them to trade up and draft another project!

                    that actually is exactly how it works lol its just a team gets capped off at 4 picks.

                    "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.

                    The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four"

                    and Bennett was a lot better than Myers (65 759 5tds for bennett, 47 522 4tds for myers) plus got a lot bigger contract than Myers. so with Bennett and Osi plus maybe a few more, since we didnt really sign anyone and let a few ppl walk, we will probably be looking at more than 1 pick

                      4th is pretty high for a Comp pick though, so I would take that in a hearbeat

                        I realize this, but it's highly unlikely anyone will care about Hixon or Blackburn.

                          Osi made 5 mill this year, which is the only reason I think maybe we'd be in that 4-5th range.

                            I read a projection somewhere that said we would most likely get a 5th and a 7th. Don't know how reputable the source was though.

                              Can't trade a compensatory pick
