Jason La Canfora: 2016 Compensatory Picks To Be Released Tomorrow

To review, I have projected that the Broncos will get either a 3rd or 4th round comp pick for Julius Thomas, a 4th round comp pick for Orlando Franklin, and a 6th round comp pick for Terrance Knighton.

In my opinion, this is a welcome development, especially once compensatory picks can become tradeable (and yes, plenty of Tweeters have reminded La Canfora that this will not happen until 2017).  Teams should have their whole arsenal of draft picks, compensatory or not, available by the start of free agency.  Furthermore, there’s not reason to not release the compensatory picks at the earliest moment possible, which would be after the Super Bowl MVP is announced for possible postseason honors adjustments.
