    Anybody know whether we received a 5th or 6th for Travis Johnson.

    The rumor is that the conditional pick was based on games played. If so, it should be a 5th rounder. He played in 13 games and also in the playoff game. However, if it's tied to production, we're looking at a 6th. He had 16 tackles, only 2 for a loss, and 0 sacks.

    Just assume it was a sixth because. . .well it's Travis Johnson.

    Here's another question:

    Do the compensatory picks get awarded for the same off-season, or do they lag a year?

    In other words, let's say that Dunta and Pitts both get signed away in March for significant money... and we don't sign any bigtime FAs. If that happens, we'd be in line for 2 middle round compensatory draft picks. Would we get those in the 2010 draft or would it be for the 2011 draft?

    Also, are there any relevant rule changes regarding compensatory picks under the adjusted 2010 no cap rules?

    Going by last years rules the number of FA's you sign also has a direct impact on the compensatory draft picks you may or may not receive.

    Yes, but the question is: does that equation take place for the same year. Or, do our off-season gains and losses get factored in for compensatory picks the following year?

    They lag a year. For instance Haynesworth leaving last off-season will be considered this off-season.

    Very funny

    It's hard to believe CC and the losing factory gave up a 1st rd pick for this guy.

    On second thought it isn't really that hard to believe.

    I'm not gonna say Rick Smith took AJ Smith to the cleaners on this trade, but getting anything out of Travis Johnson was a miracle in my eyes. I assumed he'd be cut and that'd be that. Getting a 5th for the guy feels like stealing.

    They lag because they're dependent not only on what kind of contract that player signs, but how he performs with his new team.

    For instance, if Pitts signs a mediocre contract with, say, Washington, and doesn't earn a starting spot on the team, we'd get a considerably worse pick (if one at all) than if he signs a mediocre contract with Washington and earns a pro-bowl selection.

    In regards to the OP, I don't remember where I heard it, but I am under the impression that we are due a 5th if TJ played 1/3 of SD's plays.

    You know back when we drafted Travis Johnson, i wasnt that into the draft like i am now.....but do you remember if we was a first-round lock DT?

    The only reason i ask this, is i thought the pick came out of left field? was he projected to go that high?

    I didn't really start following the draft like I do now until 2006. It was because of the whole #1 pick, Mario/Vince/Reggie/D'Brick/Trade Down debate that got me so interested in this process.

    TJ was considered a 1st round pick by most so-called Draft Experts. He had a lot of potential (there's that word again) but there were questions about the intangibles and passion.

    I really like Drew Boylhart's opinion on prospects... he's usually spot on.

    Brilliant! Smith could parlay Travis Johnson into a rookie kicker who can actually make clutch kicks.

    Draft Hunter Lawrence with that pick.
