Report: Award of comp picks delayed
By Bill Williamson
Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.com reports that the comp picks will likely be awarded at a later date. They have traditionally been awarded during the Monday of the NFL owners meetings. Each AFC West team might be in line for a late-round pick. San Diego could potentially get two late-round picks. Currently, Kansas City has seven draft picks, while Denver, Oakland and San Diego all have six.

The Broncos insist their pre-draft interest in quarterbacks is just part of the draft process. Denver has planned private workouts with quarterbacks, Blaine Gabbert and Jake Locker.
The San Diego Union Tribune has a look at the Chargers’ possibilities with the No. 18 pick in the draft.
The Chiefs are going to work out North Carolina tight end/fullback Ryan Taylor.
The Chiefs are focusing on the big picture despite the lockout.
Carolina coach Ron Rivera said the team is focusing on about eight prospects for the No. 1 pick, including quarterbacks Gabbert, Ryan Mallett and Cam Newton. Denver has the No. 2 pick.
