The Pats’ new fourth-rounder is reportedly the 139th overall pick, which keeps them at 12 total selections in the upcoming draft, second-most in the league.

Wtf does this even mean? How can someone be picked 4th and 139th at the same time?

 

How does this black magic work?  Someone help me understand this please.

 

@The Crusher? @A.J.? Anyone?

Pats took a retired player and agreed to accepting a 4th round  pick and gave back a 7th round pick, therefore they still have the same number of picks (12g.

I don't really understand what you just said.

How does it all work from the start? Like who is pick #1? What determines who gets to pick first?

 

Also I thought players are under contract? How do they get picked if they are contracted to a team??

The picks are based on place position of the season before. Last team picks first and  it go’s all the way to the super bowl champions. Trades and other things can alter the order..
 

Only college players can enter the draft. The first contract they get is based on how early they get picked, earlier the pick bigger the money. 
 

Not contracted to a team until they are drafted. Guys who don’t get picked in draft can get undrafted free agent deal for short money but the chance to prove  themselves.

Ohh ok that makes more sense. So they get picked and then teams sometimes trade the picks they picked for other teams picks?

Yeah, teams will swap teams to move up for a player they like, or move back allowing a team to move up for more picks. There’s a numerical grading system for the pick slots, but it’s gets tossed out the window when picking a potential franchise QB. To the point fans make believe the QB they picked was a franchise QB way before he proved anything close to that moniker. Story for another time.

The pick is # 139 overall. It comes in the fourth “round” of the draft.

Each round is 32 picks, the first pick of round 1 is #1 overall, etc.

Plus compensatory picks starting in the 3rd round but let’s not confuse Nolder further, lol.

Compen what nows?

Don’t worry about that. It’s some formula that awards teams additional picks for future drafts after they lose players to Free Agency (player signs with a different team). No one actually understands it. Not even the NFL

The basic structure is there are 32 picks per round, one for each team in the league. Teams can trade picks for players or other picks, so you will often see the same team picking multiple times in the same round. The order of picks are structured so the team with the worst record from the year before picks first, and then gradually works back to the Super Bowl champion who picks at the end of each round.

So I'm not sure if anyone here has Amazon Prime but if you do Amazon just released a new show called Upload which I actually enjoyed (I thought I wasn't going to like it) and would recommend. It's the most Millennial show I have ever watched. It's about a near future where if you die your consciousness can be uploaded into a sort of virtual reality afterlife program. And it's the story of a guy who dies under weird circumstances and is uploaded to basically the "rich" afterlife paid for by his controlling girlfriend. While he's there he meets a customer service representative (they call them Angels) named Nora who is still alive and helps him figure out his new afterlife and also the circumstances surrounding his untimely death. I would say the trailer doesn't really do it justice but I'll include it in this post anyway. It's only 10 30min episodes so very easy to binge watch. I watched it all in one night myself. Anyway if you have Prime maybe check it out it was pretty good.

My wife started that but she hasn't been continuing. I like sci-fi a lot so I might check this out.

I just got done binge watching a show about normal people that volunteer to go to prison for 60 days to get info and give feedback about the prison. Only the captain and the chief know about the project so the rest of the COs are unaware. Only one season on Netflix so I have to find the rest but it was interesting for me to watch. 

It is called: 60 Days In

Haha. More like, I don't have a pillow but my blanket smells like sh*t, the guy next to me is selling his pills to some other guy so now he's saying the TV's telling him another guy is a child molester, you took my tater tots so I'm going to kill you-- you know, stuff like that. The prison didn't have bars on the cells, everyone was in a giant pod, so I don't think it was the worst place ever but it still didn't look fun.

Well I moved to Texas in 1992 (Brooklyn Boy here) currently in Rhome, Texas 20 min north of Fort Worth and its a nice place . The only thing you are really going to miss is the food but there are some really good high end grocery stores like Central Market where I can buy whatever I want and still be happy plus I order online :)

OKC is not a bad place and you can live in the suburbs and be pretty happy or live out in the country with acreage like I do. You can get a really nice house with low taxes . Cool thing about Okc is you will still get 4 seasons for the most part and longer spring summer and fall as the winter does not last as long as up north . In North Texas we do not get much in the way of snow which I miss a lot  but OKC gets some nice snow storms a few times a year. 

You working for an Energy Company ? Cause they are known for those type bonuses Chesapeake is one of em. Also keep in mind 42.5 k in savings over 4 years as a bonus is pretty nice :) your money will go a little further down here as well . The suburbs here in this region of the US are newer and laid out very nicely you wont regret that. When it comes down to it, its all the same, people are the same no matter where you go.

Oh wait you said you were an HR guy  so Paycom 😛

Lots of big companies moving down here as well
