Adam is the best Compensatory pick projectionist there is on the web. Others have tried, but no one comes close to the accuracy this guys has. He has been doing this for the past nine years. Anyways, his projections are out for the 2010 draft and he has the Dolphins receiving one compensatory pick, a 6th rounder. Though in his estimations he does make note that it is a borderline 6th rounder that actually could end up as a 7th rounder. This "compensation" will be for the loss of Renaldo Hill to the Broncos last offseason.

If Miami does in fact receive a 6th round pick, it will bring Miami's total picks to 10 and they would have four picks in round 6.

How does the rest of the AFC look? Here is what he projects:

New England - 4 picks(all in the 7th round)
New York - 0 picks
Buffalo - 0 picks

We should know the true results in about 11 or 12 days. They will be announced either March 21st or March 22nd.

Always hated the idea of compensatory picks, but the third sixth would be nice.

Let's churn the bottom of the roster with more depth. Sounds good to me. Always looking for that next great pick late in the draft. How about the next Devone Bess or Wes Welker?

So we would have 4 6th round picks? I think we can recoup a 5th by trading up.

we can't trade the comp pick and i don't imagine us trying to bring 10 signed picks into camp. last year we even dumped an 09 7th for a '10 7th rounder.

we have small move up potential. we'll either stock pile some 5th rounders in 2011 or move up into the fifth or late fourth for a more attractive target.

While we can't trade the comp pick, we can use the other five picks in te 6th and 7th rounds to move around. To move from the 6th to the 5th, you would just need a 6th and a 7th, so we could conceivably do that twice if teams want to trade down.

I've expected a 6th, but wouldn't be shocked with a 7th either. Those are at the end of the draft, and are basically just ensuring whatever high priority free agent you wanted.

Yeah, a compensatory 7th round pick is basically giving teams the best shot to lock up an UDFA. By the end of the draft anyways, teams are already in contact with players they are interested in that probably won't be drafted. If there is one player you don't feel real comfortable negotiating with as an UDFA(you feel another team will convince him) you spend that compensatory pick on him.

The thing about the Dolphins compensatory pick is that it can be as high as a 6th round pick, or be no pick at all.

6th, 7th or no pick seems to be the options for the Dolphins. According to Adam, if Joe Berger qualifies, which he is projecting he does not, Miami won't get a pick. We should know real soon though. :)

No, I'm not saying trade the comp. pick, I know you can't do that. But if we get an extra 6th we can use the other 6th round picks to move up.

Here is an interesting fact. Yeremiah Bell was a 6th round compensatory pick in 2003. :up:

Compensatory picks will be announced either tomorrow or Monday. Most likely Monday.
