Yeah, #252 overall.

@AaronNagler: NFL says Pittsburgh, Baltimore & Green Bay all qualified for an additional pick but cap of 32 picks, per the CBA, had already been reached.

Ravens, Bengals clean up on compensatory picks

Posted by Darin Gantt on March 23, 2015, 9:24 PM EDT

The annual collectors of compensatory picks are at it again.

The Ravens received three extra picks Monday, adding a pair of fourth-rounders and a fifth when the league finalized the draft order.

The Ravens have always drafted well, which keeps them from having to spend in free agency. Then when their guys leave for greener pastures, they rake in the extra picks to restock and start the process all over again.

Comp picks are awarded based on net free agency gains and losses from the previous year.

By avoiding unrestricted free agents (signing guys who were cut by teams doesn’t impact the formula), Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome is able to hoard the mid- to late-round picks the league doles out.
The other big winner was the Bengals, who gained an extra third and a fourth after losing defensive end Michael Johnson and tackle Anthony Collins as unrestricted free agents last year. Both were signed by the Bucs, both were cut after one year, and Johnson has since re-signed with the Bengals.

The Patriots and Chiefs also gained third-rounders.

The NFL announced the full list Monday night, at the conclusion of the day’s business at the owners meetings. Here’s a look at the full list, with round and overall pick number:

3-97, New England

3-98, Kansas City

3-99, Cincinnati

4-132, San Francisco

4-133, Denver

4-134, Seattle

4-135, Cincinnati

4-136, Baltimore

5-169, Carolina

5-170, Seattle

5-171, Baltimore

5-172, Kansas City

5-175, Baltimore

6-208, Denver

6-209, Seattle

6-210, Green Bay

6-211, Houston

6-212, Green Bay

6-213, Carolina

A 4th round pick for Anthony Collins who already got dumped is a travesty....the bengals get a 3rd for Michael Johnson and get him back this year....rewards for other teams being completely retarded.

2 4ths for the ravens? Lost ellerbe, Oher, and Jones and gains Dumervil, but hes exempt because he was "cut".....unreal

Might as well throw away the extra seventh...because that player won't be on the team for long.

Don't say that. The seventh round is where we draft Landry Jones' replacement. ;)

Comp pick update via the team's official twitter feed:


Pittsburgh Steelers @steelers

The NFL has informed us that our compensatory pick will be in the 6th round not 7th in the upcoming draft.

Honestly a 6th is so much better than all the way at 252

Steelers awarded one compensatory pick

Posted Mar 23, 2015

Teresa Varley Steelers.com

The Steelers have used their compensatory picks to select some big contributors.

They are the draft picks that are added on to end of rounds three through seven in the NFL Draft, awarded to teams based on losses and gains during the previous year’s free agency period.

For a team like the Steelers who like to build through the draft, they are treasured and welcomed, and sometimes can help land a key contributor.

This year the Steelers were awarded just one compensatory pick, originally announced as a seventh, but changed to a sixth round pick by the NFL, based on their 2014 free agency activity.

The Steelers signed five free agents last year who play into the equation, including: LaGarrette Blount, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Mike Mitchell, Arthur Moats, and Cam Thomas. Lance Moore was waived by the Saints and Brice McCain was waived by the Texans, and therefore they don’t factor in.

The departures included: Ryan Clark, Jerricho Cotchery, Ziggy Hood, David Johnson, Emmanuel Sanders, and Al Woods. LaMarr Woodley didn’t count as a loss because the Steelers waived him prior to the start of free agency.

Among the gems the Steeles were able to nab with a compensatory pick was Kelvin Beachum, the last of four picks the team had in the seventh round in the 2012 NFL Draft. Beachum went from a rookie who was a spot starter, to the team’s starting left tackle in 2014.

The team also found linebacker Mike Vrabel, a third-round selection in 1997, running back Amos Zereoue in the third round in 1999, guard Willie Colon in the fourth round in 2006 and William Gay in the fifth round in 2007.

Last year the Steelers selected Dri Archer (third round) and Daniel McCullers (sixth round) with compensatory picks.

When this time of year rolls around next year, one thing to keep in mind. Had Jason Worilds not retired and signed with a team as an unrestricted free agent, the Steelers likely would have gotten one of the higher compensatory picks as a result. But because he retired, he doesn’t count in the equation.

I think theres a pretty big difference when talking about the last 40 picks of the draft

If we are able to get a player of Antonio Brown or Greg Lloyd quality? It might...

Database error leads to revision of three compensatory selections

The NFL has revised three compensatory selections after a “database error” led to a need to correct a few of the picks that were awarded to teams earlier this week.

The NFL Management Council revised three compensatory selections belonging to the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The changes add an additional compensatory pick to the fifth round with one less pick in the sixth round.

Carolina’s sixth-round selection (6-38-213) is now a fifth-round pick (5-38-174).

Denver’s sixth-round selection (6-33-208) is now a seventh-round pick (7-33-250).

Pittsburgh’s seventh-round pick (7-35-252) is now a sixth-round (6-36-212).

Exactly what the error was is unknown. Since the league doesn’t publicize the formula that goes into the awarding of compensatory picks, it’s impossible to figure out what exactly led to the database error. The general formula is based on how many free agents a team lost in the previous offseason with a value assigned based on the size of the contract, performance and awards of the players that left.

Now we can draft 2 Chippewas in the 6th Walton n Davis. He have been very fortunate with the 6th round so lets hope that continues.

So, when all is said and done, we've gone from this:

1.22
2.56
3.87
4.121
5.160
6.198
7.239
7.252

To this:

1.22
2.56
3.87
4.121
5.160
6.199
6.212
7.239

Our comp pick moved up 40 spots from 252 to 212, and our regular 6th rounder moved back one spot from 198 to 199.
