    The league has announced its compensatory picks for the draft.

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/03/23/2009-compensatory-draft-picks/

    Four teams get third-rounders (NE, Cincy, Chicago and the Giants).
    There are four fourth-rounders (two for SD, one for Tenn and Indy).
    Pitt, NE, SF, Dallas and Tenn get fifth-rounders.
    The rest are sixth and seventh round picks.

    Adjust your point charts accordingly . . .

    So, I wonder what the tacks will get for loosing Haynesworth in 2010 ? Is the third round the highest you can garner....or will they get a one at the end of the round next year ?

    The magical formula. Only those with the magic know what the formula is.

    The highest compensatory pick a team can get is in the third round. You can probably go ahead and pencil in the Tacks for one of those next year.

    There's a guy who posts on the KFFL board who's something of a guru at predicting compensatory picks. His projection for this year was pretty darned close. He was only off on the top 17 picks by one selection--though it was a pretty big one. He had the Steelers getting a third round pick for losing Alan Faneca, but the NFL only gave them a fifth round pick. That aside, he had the rest of the first 17 nailed in exactly the right order. The rest of his picks weren't too far off, either.

    Here's a link to his projection:

    For what it's worth, Dallas got a 5th rounder for Jacque Reeves while the Seahawks got a 7th rounder for Kevin Bentley.

    Ah, the majical formula know one but the NFL knows....until they, the NFL posts it, I'm figuring they have something to hide.

    So, if a team loses a good player they gain a pick. The team that gained the free agent loses a pick..... Is this correct? SO does the team that gains the pick, do they get the pick from the team that they lost the free agent to?

    Nobody loses a pick. The Falcons don't lose a pick for signing Michael Turner, the Eagles don't lose a pick for signing Asante Samuel, even though SD and NE each get picks (that is to say there will be rounds where more than 32 selections are made).

    And theoretically (as has been indicated earlier, the formula itself is somewhat mysterious), if a team loses a player, they only gain a pick if they fail to replace him with somebody as good or better via free agency.

    How they determine how good players acquired and players lost were is a riddle inside of a conundrum wrapped in an enigma.
