We're assuming a 3rd round pick, because multiple sources have announced that we've already offered a third (plus some other late round pick). Even if they are false, think about it. What's bettter? A 4th in the 2012 draft or a potential 3rd round comp pick (which is essentially a 4th anyway since they don't come until the very end of the 3rd round) two years later in 2014 (if they keep him this season and let him go at the end of the year in FA, they don't get a 2013 comp pick, they'll get a 2014 pick).
Why wait 2 more years for something that may in all likelihood be WORSE compensation? Is having him on your roster this year with two other more than capable backs really worth that?
