I thought for sure we'd get a pick for Milford Brown.

From the link above:

Quote:
Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in a 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. The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 223 choices in the seven rounds of the 2007 NFL Draft (April 28-29). This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

We got a 3rd and a 4th from the losses of Julian Peterson and Andre Carter!


Although it was expected and came to no surprise really. But still cool!

Indy also got a few picks....could help them reload a bit on the defensive side. Offense doesn't need much help.

No we don't. You only get them if their contracts are up. That is why the Texans almost never get compensatory picks, we cut all of our guys early.

As it stands...nothing. We've signed Green, Black, Clark, Barber and Zgonina. We've lost Peek and Lewis Sanders. More signings than losses.

i dont think that matters

i always thought that if you lose a player that does well elsewhere you'll get a pick..doesnt matter if you pick up a replacement...but i could be wrong too

Well, I think it should be as you suggest. But what the NFL has said regarding the top secret compensation formula states otherwise. The term "net loss" is included in their explanation. Furthermore, Green got a better contract than Peek & Sanders combined. The contract seems to be the largest component in determining what pick a team gets. Unless the NFL comes up with an entirely new formula (not possible without the NFLPA's agreement), there's no chance the Texans get a compensatory pick in the '08 draft.

A player to watch for who could be traded by draft day is Justin Smiley. Definitely a good OG but is entering the final year of his contract, and with the huge contracts guys like Dockery and Steinbach received this year, you can bet Justin Smiley will be getting paid after his rookie contract expires when the FA period begins in 2008. Plus he is more of a WCO oriented guard and doesn't really fit our power-running game scheme. We probably won't re-sign him because from what I understand Nolan/McCloughan don't believe in investing a lot of cash into the interior O-line, and we have David Baas ready to step in and fill that vacancy if Smiley were to leave. Well actually they spent a pretty good amount for an OG in Larry Allen, but the purpose of that signing was more of a signing to show David Baas the nuances of the game. So maybe look for Justin Smiley to be dealt for a 3rd.
