yeah, I think your right to some degree, Texans would be very fortuitous to receive 4 compensatory picks. Ball = Allen. James = Dreesen. Graham = Rackers. Jones/Forsett/Harris + performance could knock down Mario Williams. In conclusion we decided to lower expectations (bundle of extra picks) to help Texan fans from being crushed next February @ the combine when the NFL awards compensatory picks. I'm sure there will much discussion to follow on this subject, just remember with success of Texans free agent group, despite lower contracts, they will most likely offset early projections.
