No problem Verks.

Basically the NFL looks at the players you have lost to Free agency and the players you have gained from Free Agency in a single year.

If you have lost more good players than you have added then you are line for a compensatory draft pick - basically its a reward for drafting well.

The way they work out how much each player is worth is based upon the contract they sign with their new team and how many games they play for that new team.

Take Edgerrin James for example - he played and started 16 games for the Cardinals last year and he signed a big contract for them - thats why he is worth a 3rd rounder.

Unfortunately, actual performance (how well that player does) isn't taken into account.

So a player like Reche Caldwell, who started 14 games last year and caught 61 passes, is still only worth a 7th round pick to San Diego because he signed such a cheap contract with the Patriots.

I hope that makes things clearer for you - feel free to ask any more questions.
