    I've never understood the comp pick system. Because he got hurt the Steelers get screwed on their pick?

    Another aspect that I don't get is, you can choose to not sign a player for a number of reasons, and just let them walk. And many times will get a comp pick for them. You could've signed them but didn't.

    However, teams don't receive comp picks due to catastrophic/career ending injury. Why? Like Shazier. We lost our best defensive player, not by a choice not to sign him, but because his career was cut short by injury during his prime. Why wouldn't the Steelers receive a comp pick for that?

    Yeah I brought up a comment pretty much exactly this....I don't understand this part of the game either. :shrug:
    Also every time I turn around seems like a new rule I haven't heard of. Well since it rained on November the 16 this Year while Dupree was practicing on the left hand side of Tennessee D line....the Steelers will not receive a comp pick....What????LoL

    He has to play a certain number of snaps for the Steelers to get a pick since he’s on IR they said he would have to average 67 snaps a game for the last 4 games assuming he’s back in time

    It's not a matter of "enough snaps to get a pick", it's a matter of do we get a third or a fourth round pick. We will receive a pick either way.

    From the article, which some of us choose to read rather than panic at the headlines-

    "..Dupree is not on pace to have enough snaps. If that's the case, the Steelers would receive a fourth round compensatory pick, not a third."

    Yes I realize that but to say they won’t lose picks due to his snap count is not true.

    3 things determine comp picks
    first and foremost is the size of the contract. second is percentage of the over all snap count. third is post season accolades such as probowl or MVP awards. so if mike hilton would have made the probowl that would have boosted his comp value.
    then of course the FA you gained comes in to play that can cancel out players you lost.
    i was kind of thinking the steelers were holding witherspoon out for so long so he didnt mess with their comp picks.

    Witherspoon was a trade, not a FA. We sent a 2023 5th rounder to Seattle for him.

    Looks to be a good move trading for Witherspoon , Colberts fault?

    Do any games Dupree plays for the Mean Machine count towards our 3rd round comp?
