It took a while for somebody to point out that there actually is a compensation for losing the first-rounder: the money that would go to that first-rounder can be used to help re-sign/extend some of the Pats' current players. Like, I don't know, maybe a WR who caught 9 passes for 183 yards last Sunday. . . . I'm sure Ratgini would just love to have to game-plan for Moss twice a year for the next four or five years.
