Default 7th Rounder for Dunta Robinson

Classic, the Texans are probably the only team in the NFL who could lose a starting corner and former first round pick, clearly be in deep trouble at his position the next season, and then get awarded almost nothing as compensation. Do you think if the Eagles, Colts, or Patriots had been in this exact same position the pick would have been a 7th rounder? No big deal though, we're on the right track and Bob McNair isn't going to do anything "crazy".

I expected about a 4th round pick, but oh well, it's not like it matters.. When our brain trust is drafting a 4th round pick has about the same chance at success as a 7th round pick.

Default Re: 7th Rounder for Dunta Robinson

We did NOT get a compensatory pick for Dunta.

Every year, they award 32 compensatory picks throughout the draft. This year, 21 were given to teams for the loss of free agents, the other 11 are awarded at the end of the 7th round to each team in order that they draft. So the Texans have the 11th pick in the first, which means they got the 11th and final compensatory pick awarded.

From your link it looks like KC got a 6th for Wade Smith.

It would appear that way, but I'm not sure if or how many free agents they signed last year.

Let's remember that the secretive compensatory pick formula is brought to you by the same league entity, "The NFL Management Council," that is responsible for negotiations related to the CBA with the NFLPA.

Default Re: 7th Rounder for Dunta Robinson

A 7th is more than I expected ....


At first I thought they might get a 3rd rounder out of the deal but was corrected by someone (cant recall who) so I researched it a bit and came to the conclusion we would get nothing at all ..... which is pretty much what they get in Mr Irrelevant ....

wade smith and neil rackers cancelled out the loss of dunta in the minds of whoever awards the compensatory picks.

mr. irrelevant is kinda nice though; gives us a talking point for the end of the draft!

Still hanging in there. They're getting tougher every year though.

It took me a little while to remember which thread that was in. Back on November 11th I was 260lbs (261 actually but who's counting... wait, I was!) In the 4 months or so that have passed I've dropped 30 pounds of that. Halfway to my goal of 200lbs. Maybe when I get down to my true fighting weight I'll have less trouble with these wet paper bags.

I'm trying to take it off slowly and avoiding the shortcuts. I'd like to keep it off once I've lost it and I'm not naturally inclined towards obesity. For most of this time I've been just eating less and haven't added much if any additional activity. Walking instead of driving, stairs instead of elevators and stuff like that. Just the past month I've added biking when I get home. I think I'm going to have to get more active to lose the next 30 pounds.
