Comp picks

According to this article, the Giants will not get a pick unless they cut one of the players they signed. If true, it seems like a miscalculation. Latimer is not good enough to lose out on a 4th round pick in my opinion

I believe they like Lattimer

He provides upside as a WR...he SPECIALS as a Coverage guy and as a Returner....He's Big and Physical.....

Beyond his absolute value, he fills a lot of slots that this team was missing at WR Positional Depth and the Special Teams. He's an NFL level Athlete with a Skill Position Upside.

The problem is

That Geno Smith is showing as a non qualifying free agent signing loss for the a giants. I donít understand this change in the OTC cancellation charts. I originaly thought the contract signing value alone was what counted towards a qualified signing. It appears to me now that there is a threshold for the number of qualified free agents counted for all teams combined.
Here is what is now said by OTC

Also notable is that this could be the first year under the current CBA that getting a seven figure APY is required to qualify for the compensatory formula. Currently, Geno Smith, at $1 million even, is on the bubble of qualifying, and with him out of consideration (as is likely unless something disastrous happens to the durable Philip Rivers) it opens up a 7th rounder to the Chargers for either Kenny Wiggins or Matt Slauson, and also takes off the board a 4th rounder to the Giants for either Weston Richburg or Justin Pugh.
I thought it was weighted on value somehow

Not just simple math like lost 5 and gained 5.
If they are right about the week 10 cut-off (and they could be wrong)

But if they cut one of the two before Week 10, it would open up a 4th rounder for one of Weston Richburg or Justin Pugh, and if they cut both it would open up an additional 5th or 6th for Devon Kennard.
This affords them the ability to get some production out of them before determining if it's worth it or not to cut them after week 9.

It is and it isn't. And given the fact that they may tweak it from year to year, you can't even rely on historical trends. You never know when a curveball is coming.
Comp picks never made sense to me

Teams elect not to resign players. Thatís their choice. An incentive program rewarding teams for not resigning players makes no sense.

It rewards teams that draft well, but are unable to keep everyone because of that. The flip side is that by giving that team extra draft picks, you are perpetuating the cycle.

I understand why compensatory picks were added - to reward teams who drafted well, but could not keep everyone due to the realities of the salary cap. My problem is that just about every Free Agent now qualifies if they have a signing bonus, with an increasing number of 3rd and 4th round comp picks. If they upped the minimum from $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 and adjusted the cutoffs for each round it would become more like originally intended.
Why double dip?

Shouldnít drafting well be itís own reward? If anything I would rather see them incentify teams to resign the players they drafted. As a fan, it suck when your team hits on a draft pick you grow attached to then see him leave for free agency. Comp picks incentifies teams to develop players and let them walk. Iím not a fan of this at all.

Fits into the teams they like patterns, and just use that so they can continue to sell them on NFL network at geniuses.
