Haha for sucking so bad? Pretty sure it was for losing free agents, but who did we lose that didn't suck?

We got it because Ben Hamilton went to Seattle.

Bannan wasn't very good, but he didn't outright suck.

This crap needs to stop, its freaking stupid that you get draft picks because you are choosing not to sign a player and then someone decides how good the players was to hand out draft picks.

According to nfl.com, Denver's comp pick is due to sucking, not Ben Hamilton.

"Twenty one compensatory picks were awarded to clubs based upon the compensatory pick formula. By rule, 11 additional choices were awarded at the end of the seventh round to bring the total number of compensatory selections to 32, equaling the number of NFL clubs. The 11 additional picks were awarded to Carolina, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Denver, Cleveland, Arizona, San Francisco, Tennessee, Dallas, Washington and Houston based upon the 2011 draft selection order."

Denver has lost G Ben Hamilton to Seattle in free agency, so the Broncos have received a seventh-round draft pick -- selection 246 overall -- in April's draft

The additional 7th rounder is NOT for Ben Hamilton....

7 43/243 Carolina
7 44/244 Buffalo
7 45/245 Cincinnati
7 46/246 Denver

Yep, once all of the picks are awarded to the teams via the "secret formula", they fill in the rest to reach 32 picks. Any idiot could see they gave those picks to the highest picking teams in the draft.

Definitely not for Ben Hamilton, we signed more FA's than we lost to much more lucrative contracts.

By the way Denver have had 5 comp picks in the last 10 years, can anyone guess the 5 players we took???

Wasn't Maurice Clarett a comp pick?

Well, any draft pick is a help.

I was gonna guess Clarett and Jeff Shoate and Jeremy LeSeuer, and had no idea at all beyond Clarett, then decided to research and found:

2006 - Domenik Hixon
2005 - Foxworth and Clarett
2004 - Brandon Miree and Bradlee Van Pelt

For the heck of it, I looked up PITT's comp picks, nine since 2006:

2010 DB Crezdon Butler Clemson Compensatory Pick
2010 LB Stevenson Sylvester Utah Compensatory Pick
2010 DL Doug Worthington Ohio State Compensatory Pick
2009 RB Frank Summers Nevada-Las Vegas compensatory pick
2007 DL Ryan McBean Oklahoma State compensatory pick
2007 DB William Gay Louisville compensatory pick
2006 OL Willie Colon Hofstra compensatory pick
2006 DL Orien Harris Miami compensatory pick
2006 TE Charles Davis Purdue compensatory pick

BALT has had 20 compensatory draft picks since 2003.
INDY 13 since 2003.
NE 15 since 2005.
SD 7 since 2004.
TENN 16 since 2004.
MIA 7 since 2003.
OAK 8 since 2004.
KC 3 since 2003.

Is there a correlation to W-L records there?
