    You are WAY overrating what we'll get. Givens is more likely a #4 and Vinatraitor more like a #6.

    Thirteen picks overall and either five or six on Day One.

    It's almost like the haul you'd expect for an Expansion team. Twice the number of picks most teams will have. And if the Browns and Steelers had kept Tucker and Cobbs, respectively, we'd have had two more-- fifteen in all. That would have been some kind of record.

    With this kind of draft power, we can rebuild the team from the ground up. We dont even need to resign Graham or Koppen to veteran contracts. If they want to go elsewhere, we can draft Week One starters in the first two rounds to replace them, and at bargain basement prices. Then, collect more of those Compensatory picks.

    Now, with Branch out of the picture, we could actually put the Franchise tag on someone else... Koppen, perhaps? He's deserving of top-10 salary, and I've read in the past that he'd give the Eagles a home-town discount. Maybe someone'll give us a first rounder for him, too.

    Graham is actually more Franchisable as the TE number is half what the OL number is and all OL are grouped together (OT, OG, C have one Franchise value).

    I wonder if the Branch compensation is similar to the deal Denver worked out for Lelie, whereby the trade is in "draft points" from the draft value chart and not a fixed pick. IOW, if Seattle finishes at #25 or higher, for example, the Pats would then receive an additional mid-rounder to compensate.
