    Default Colts Get Additional Draft picks

    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...703270350/1100

    The Indianapolis Colts have been awarded compensatory choices in the third, fourth and fifth rounds of the April 28-29 NFL draft, the league announced Monday.


    The Colts received the 98th, 136th and 173rd overall selections based on their net loss of three free agents in 2006. The compensatory picks are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.
    The Colts lost running back Edgerrin James, linebacker David Thornton, tackle Larry Tripplett and kicker Mike Vanderjagt and signed kicker Adam Vinatieri.

    This is about the best the Colts could have hoped for. This is great!
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    Colts win Super Bowl and now additional picks. No wonder Polian walks around with a constant smile.

    SD and NE also got some nice picks. Glad to see picks go to teams that are actually probably going to get some good players out of it.

    One nice aspect of the NFL - you may get raped by free agency but if you use the comp picks right you can also recover. NE has that down to a science.

    Sure did! If you do your homework, and find a few guys that are hungry, or that fit your system, they can produce!

    I'm gonna refer back to this thread, and keep my eye on who we select in those slots!
