NFL ANNOUNCES 32 COMPENSATORY DRAFT CHOICES TO 15 CLUBS

A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2008 NFL Draft have been awarded to 15 teams, the NFL announced today.

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 220 choices in the seven rounds of the 2008 NFL Draft (April 26-27). 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.

One club this year (St. Louis) will receive a compensatory pick even though it did not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents. Under the formula, the compensatory free agents St. Louis lost were ranked higher than the ones it signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and performance).

The following 2008 draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council:

You have to remember, it's based on total wins per season vs players lost to free agency.

You go 4-12 - I do not have to say anything else...

When did total wins kick into the equation? It didn't.

It's free agents GAINED against free agents LOST.
