Predicted Compensatory Draft Picks
There is a guy (ADAMJT13) who has been 'on the money' last couple of years in predicting the value of comp picks - he posts over at kffl.com.
Here are his predictions for this years.
Looks like Indy and SD are the big winners - replaced some big names and came off not too badly - Indy especially done very well.
Pittsburgh appear to be in line for an extra 4 and 5.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
