    What is the rule on this one?

    Will the Pats and the Broncos get picks for their players untimely passing(s)?

    Just curious.

    Not trying to be callous or cold hearted in the least, that is why I made up a different thread about it.

    I haven't heard anything about the Broncos getting any extra picks so I don't think so. I could be wrong though.

    I think supplemental picks would only go for free agents losses. The Colts did not get one when Brandon Burlsworth was killed in a car wreck.

    We don't get anything, it's like a career ending injury. We shouldn't, either, Hill probably wouldn't have made the team. It's a human tragedy but not much of a talent issue for the team.

    It may matter on the timing and circumstances of the incident. I don't believe the Steelers were compensated years ago when their 1st round pick DT Gabriel Rivera was paralyzed in a car crash, but the Raiders WERE compensated as I recall when a 2nd round draftee DT Washington State (#31 overall), Leon Bender, was killed after the draft due to a seizure disorder. Late note - I can't find anything more saying that the Raiders were compensated, maybe an AFC West fan can tell us more.

    What happens to his salary and will it effect the cap?

    Ernie Davis was the #1 pick and never played a down in the NFL (died of leukiema), and Cleveland got no compensation.

    Davis (yet another in a long line of distinguished Syracuse alumni) was the first African American to win the Heisman.
    http://www.espn.go.com/classic/biography/s/Davis_Ernie.html

    I think that people are confusing the "supplemental" draft (for players such as Georgia's Oliver, who was declared academically ineligible, after the draft). And the Free agent "Compensation" picks granted at the ends of rounds 3-7 in the regualr draft to compensate for loss of free agents.

    What happened to Hill is an absolute tradegy, and it appears that he spent his last moments trying to help another. I realize that trying to access the effects this will have on the Pats is natural for us fans, but I think we may want to wait a few more days before doing so.

    As far as i know htere is no special draft for players dying.

    But there isa special Draft for restocking a club that has had all or most of its Team killed in an accident. i think it was developed after the chartered plane crash that killed all the players on a college team, (Wayne State??) back a decade or more ago. I'm not sure what the exact deal would be but every team would have its roster exposed ,and the replacement team would be created much like an expansion draft, I beleive. Does any one have the detailsfor this contingency disaster planning ?:confused:

    It is most disrespectful to be pondering the nuts and bolts of "compensation", salary cap hits, etc. so soon. Have a heart.:(

    It's a moot point as Hill had an uphill job to even make the team. It's a human tragedy but not much of a football story.

    The team you are thinking of, I believe is Marshall. I have no idea about the rest of your post tho.

    ESPN did something a while ago, basically every sports league has a contingency plan written up was to what to do if an entire team is lost. If you think about the amount of air travel that pro teams do, It is amazing that it has only happened once.

    I think about that all the time.

    Or...every once in a while.
