There's been much teeth gnashing in the past couple of days since the NFL announced its compensatory picks and the Steelers did not get the third-round selection everyone assumed they'd receive for the loss of Pro Bowl guard Alan Faneca, instead getting a fifth-round pick.
Turns out, it's part of the rules.
According to the compensatory pick rules, teams that lose a player with 10 or more NFL seasons under their belt are awarded a pick no higher than the fifth round for that player.
Thus the Steelers were awarded the highest pick they could have received for losing Faneca.
I guess even AdamJT13 doesn't know everything about how compensatory picks are awarded.
