2011 NFL draft: Order with comp picks
By Mike Sando
The NFL released its compensatory draft choices for 2011, allowing us to set the order for selection.
I've put together my initial draft-order file, to be updated and supplemented. Download it here.
A few quick notes:
- The league forced Kansas City and Detroit to swap fifth-round picks, with the Lions losing a seventh-rounder, as part of a tampering case. I don't know if the appeals process is complete.
- The San Francisco 49ers have a league-high 12 choices.
- Compensatory picks cannot be traded.
- Seattle appeared to be in line for a fourth-round compensatory choice, but the signing of guard Ben Hamilton appears to have offset the equation.
I'm going to get working on an updated file.
