(9:00 AM): Eagles, Rams head comp pick list... The NFL has announced that the league has assigned 14 teams 32 compensatory picks at the 2005 draft. Philadelphia and St. louis lead the way with 4 picks

They are:
5th: #172
6th: #211
7th: #247, #252

They really should be able to move up in the draft...

I would love for Andy Reid to fall in love with Mike Williams to compliment T.O. give the Browns our 1st rder, one of our 3rd's, and the comp. sixth for there #3 pick and maybe another pick next year so we can get Mike Williams. Then our offense would be set

If I understand, we can't trade the comp picks at all (we'd have to draft them and then trade their rights which I think is kosher with the league).

I definitely see them trading up to get a player that they are secretly targeting. Or even trade this years pick for next years draft. There are not enough rosters spots since a lot of starters are retuning. I canít wait till April 23.

I would be pissed if the Eagles traded up this year. This draft doesn't call for that and it would be a terrible decision. I'm all for trading picks for picks in future drafts.

In order to get the #3 pick in the draft, we'd have to give up at least #31, #35, and #63. And that would be considered a steal from our perspective. This particular year, the high draft picks have been devalued, since there are fewer elite guys and a bunch of good guys. Even so, moving from #31 to #3 is a huge jump, which is expensive to do.

#31, #77, and #167 is pretty fair value for somewhere around the #20 pick.

Here's a possibility...
#31 + #35 for #11-13
#63 + #77 for #40-45
#146 + #167 (5ths) for #115-120 (4th)

End up with:
#11 (1st)
#40 (2nd)
#94 (3rd)
#132 (4th)
#172 (5th - comp)
#211 (6th - comp)
#245 (7th)
#247 (7th)
#252 (7th)

Still 9 picks, though only 3 first day picks. Not sure who they might target at #11, though. Merriman would be cool. Troy Williamson.

Only another month until the draft...

Hey ninjapirate
I think your right about trading up in the 1st round & begining of 2nd.
It's to costly for the additional value in player quality that one gets.
It's not a good bang for the buck idea.
But..........................................
I think using later round picks to move up the 63, 77 and 94 would
be a good value. I say use 132, 146, and 167 to bump up the others.
Such as:
maybe 77 + 132 + 167 = 64 move up 13 spots
maybe 94 + 132 +167 = 78 move up 16 spots
maybe 94 + 132 + 146 + 167 = 71 move up 23 spots
Or get crazy and maybe 77 + 94 + 146 = 55 move up 22 spots

I think that this is where the value is.
Remember there are 32 additional picks after the 3rd round
so the 4th, 5th, 6th rounds are water down and not worth as much.
Our 7th round picks are like 8th rounders now !
Maybe finish with this:
31, 35, 63
64 = 77 + 132 + 167
84 = 94 + 146
172, 211, 245, 247, 252
Total 10 picks and 5 still in the top 84 players

If they can trade the later rounds out to next year then great but
if not then AR can show us how good they are and find some sleeps
If they get 2 players from the last 4 picks to make the PSquad then its great

I donít think the draft is that diluted after the 3rd round. Most of the compensatory picks come after the 5th round. There are a 9 compensatory picks awarded in the 3rd and 4th. Basically it depends on how you define diluted?

I personally think they will trade up to grab someone they really like. A DL or OTÖIt would be hard to trade out of this years draft to the next, if every other team views this draft as weak. I see them packaging there 31st and 63 to move up. Anyone think they will move up and try to grab Health Miller?

One thing is for sure, we dont have room for 13 more players, especially because the Eagles pride themselves on picking up undrafted free agents.

i would have to say that the Eagles will either trade up quite abit or trade out of the draft completely!

there is no way that we are going to be able to accomodate 6 people onto our team let alone 13.

i guarentee alot of trading will happen on draft day.

personally i would like to trade up and get an impact player.

i wouldnt mind trading the #31 #63 and #77 plus other picks to move up into the top 10ish region and grab a player who is falling, hopefully someone like Merriman, DJ, or one of the top WR.

we would still have the #35 and #94 to also draft quality players and add depth. hopefully we can get rid of Freddie in a trade for a team stupid enough to take him Very Happy

They are awarded to teams for free agen losses.
The bigger the impact of the player that is lost, the higher the pick. That Is why the Titans got an extra 3rd rounder for the loss of Kearse, and the Eagles fot later round picks because the players that we lost (Troy Bobbie Duce and Bobbie Williams) didnt have a big impact on their new teams, and we were not adversely affected by their losses.

Hope that helps.
