That's fantastic news. I didn't expect it to be that high.

I had them for a 4th round but this is fanastic!

I'll expect a trade in early rounds if they can find a partner.

4 picks in the first 105. I'll take that! Hopefully add another reciever or edge rusher with that pick.

11 teams got 3rd rounders. The league must have changed its formula making it easier to get higher draft picks. With the rule change allowing them to be traded, I can't help but think they're trying to give teams more ammunition for round 1 and 2 trades.

I'm very excited about this. I think there's a fair bit of talent at positions of need that will be there in rounds 2-4.

Technically, we lost 2 starters that I can think of in Beachum and Blake (Laughing)

Technically it would have been 3 starters - McClendon was probably the best over all FA pick up too of everyone we lost last year.

Sean Spence also had a decent season.

I'd argue Beachum is a better player and starter than McLendon. Then again, I thought he was terrible; so I can't exactly be unbiased there.

With compensatory picks being tradeable now it could make things interesting come draft day.

I just meant in terms of play last year on their new teams. McLendon had a decent year when he played. Beachum couldn't say that. I may be wrong- but I thought performance of FA also was a factor for comp picks.

I'm glad teams are allowed to do that now.
