    Main Event, thanks for the Tweet. Assuming no more SK draft and FA moves and the numbers hold, 11-12 Cards picks in '18 could put the FO in control of the draft, especially if the team needs that one special player. A QB maybe.

    In regards to our score card. Don't forget you can have a negative return. Eventually with diminishing returns you lose more than you can gain through comp picks and that's what we are seeing with the Cards. We've basically lost 9 players for 4 comp picks now. It'd have been nice to have more balance but it is what it is.

    Yep, I know what you mean about historical neg returns on some comp picks . But, the Cards GM is neither the former Cleveland Browns and LA Rams GMs that messed up dream drafts. I'm betting on our executive of the year Steve Keim to turn a few FA losses into a few big comp pick gains. Or trades. Recommend let's be patient and see what Steve does.

    3s and 4s aren't getting us the QBOTF.

    If the Cards could give up a 3RD for a Calais player right now, they would do it and not blink ...
    No more Snyder.

    We dont have the cap space for his 15m/year salary. At least in this case we get a 3rd round pick back.
    I think most on this board expected to lose a lot of guys this year, at least we are getting some compensation back

    I wouldn't bet on that last statement at all. Right now a 3rd pick that comes in and participates on the 53 man roster is a better long term venture than a 10 yr Pro Bowl vet with a a huge Salary. It's the Value for the Buck and that is the Bottom line in the current NFL.

    And add in that the compensatory picks affect When you get a player in the Draft very much. That 3rd Comp pick is worth more in terms of getting a quality player than the pushed back 4th, 5th, 6th, and even 7th rd picks. It's why I've hated the comp system until this year. Got so tired of seeing the rich get richer off this system. Now AZ is in position, thanks to SK, to reap some of these "windfall profit" players in the upcoming draft next year. Just to bad we did not make the grade/cut for comp picks last year to impact this draft class of rookies for the Team.

    Use this comp on Chad Kelly. He's a risk but he has the arm. Draft Webb in round 3 and Kelly in round 5 if no qb is drafted in round 1. The Cards will have to have a quarterback eventually and they could both learn for a year or two.
