Comp picks announced

The NFL handed out 32 compensatory picks on Friday - a little earlier than expected. The Steelers, as expected, received none.

Only one third-round pick was given out this year - to the Carolina Panthers. Carolina picked up three extra picks.

Any extra draft picks are very useful this season. With the lockout in place, teams are not permitted to sign undrafted rookies following the draft next month.

In effect, the only rookies who know they'll have a shot at a job are the ones who are drafted. It could create a big rush to sign not only veteran free agents, but rookies as well, when a new CBA is finally in place.

I think Patrick forgot to take his antipsychotic because that is a loose association. Other Patrick, why don't you go back to commenting on baseball. That one came out of left field.
