Yeah, but I'm saying that if we stopped after the second -- the following would happen:

(A) We can all re-valuate our draft boards. Make sure we know what guys have been picked (cough -- TRAVELER -- cough) and re-set them accordingly.

(B) Teams receiving compensatory selections would have the ability to move up into the third round or move up higher elsewhere and get their guy. I think this is very fair. It gives everyone (outside those not receiving compensatory selections) to operate on a more fair playing ground.

We don't know what all picks would be announced. Why should people be denied their shot at a player on their board whom they rate highly? For instance -- say a team likes Jimmy Beanboy from UCLA -- but they lack a third rounder. What if that team gets two fourths in the compensatory round and would then have the ability to make a trade for him and get them?

I honestly think it is the best route to go. I know I would certainly like to know what picks the Bengals may or may not be getting so I can analyze the rest of my board, slot players and project possible trades.
