Seattle gets seventh-round compensatory pick
Posted by Danny O'Neil
The NFL has announced copmensatory picks awarded, and Seattle will be getting an seventh-round choice in this year's draft, No. 245 overall.
Stating what the Seahawks get is a whole lot easier than explaining how they got there.
Under the collective-bargaining agreement, a team that loses more "compensatory free agents" than it signs is eligible to receive picks as compensation.
Last season, Seattle lost free agents Rocky Bernard, Maurice Morris, Leonard Weaver and Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack while signing players like T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Colin Cole and John Owens.
The net result of all that? Seattle gets a seventh-round pick, which it can not trade.
If you want to learn more about the compensatory pick process, I refer you to the illustrious AdamJT13 who's like the Mel Kiper Jr. of this compensatory-pick business only more accurate.
