A look ahead at NFC South draft order

3/5/2009

Although we're still focusing on free agency, it's not too early to peek ahead at the draft. Compensatory picks haven't been figured in yet (they'll come in late March or early April), but here's a look at what draft picks each NFC South team holds at the moment.

Compensatory picks don't start until the end of the third round. That's why we stop giving the overall number in the fourth round. As of the moment, all four NFC South teams won't be picking in the same round until the fourth.

1-14-14 New Orleans

1-24-24 Atlanta
