Not sure how I missed it, but I didn't realize until just now that the league handed out 11 third round comp picks this year. That's absurd. I went back 10 years and they had never given out more than four, and averaged closer to three. Suddenly this year there are 11? They need to reevaluate the formula. Russell Okung and Kelvin Beachum (among others) are not worth 3rd round comps. And guys who sign one-year contracts shouldn't count at all, IMO.

Good grief. I just read the responses lol, there is absolutely no one on this board who has the qualifications to have even an entry level position in an NFL front office. Period.

No one will ever be anything more than that. Hell not only are there only people on a message board but a 3rd rate message board.

When we went over to to then webzone everyone was meek as babes, couldn't compete. The level of delusion is laughable and reminds me of why I stopped getting on these boards.

With that bit of reality, I'm out until season starts.

Old thread, I realize, but I wasn't sure where to post. I think I complained about it at the time, but I was thinking again about the Kapri Bibbs trade. Didn't like it at the time, and like it even less now. We got Bibbs and the 177th pick (5th-round comp pick) for our 2018 4th. That 2018 pick is likely to be in the 110-120 range. That would effectively be a two-round drop. More importantly, the difference in talent between the early fourth and a fifth-round comp in terms of the caliber of player is pretty huge. You're talking about potential starter/solid backup vs. hope he makes the roster. That's a lot to give up for a guy who has just over 200 career yards from scrimmage.

I generally liked the draft, but I do have some questions about Lynch moving up. He moved up late into rounds a lot, targeting specific players. And as we learned from Peter King, he would have given up a hell of a lot more for Foster if another team had taken him up on it (thankfully they didn't). I don't mind targeting guys you really want in later rounds, but all those late-round picks we had to give up can add up, especially for a talent-starved roster. I'll be interested to see if that trend continues going forward.
