Apart from our 3 division rivals ALREADY being more talented and more deep than us, they also have been stockpiling draft picks for this year, whereas we have the fewest in the league. Thus, our hated rivals will add to their already superior rosters with young, cap-friendly talent, and we will have to live with the memories of 55, 66 and 78 in Redskins unis. The differences will probably increase once the compensatory picks are announced.
But I am glad to hear that Danny and Vinny have learned their lessons about how to build the roster.
Full draft order announced… The NFL announced the full seven-round selection order for the 2009 draft - minus compensatory picks which are still to be announced - late last week. The comp picks are expected to be revealed later this month. With the comp picks still to come, Philadelphia leads the way with 12 selections so far at the 2009 draft. Indeed, the Eagles are currently the only team with ten or more picks. Teams with 9 picks to date include Dallas, Denver, Green Bay, Miami and the Giants. In contrast, New Orleans and Washington, each with only four picks so far this year, have the fewest picks of any team, while Carolina and Cleveland both have 5 picks. Here is the full break-down of picks by team with the compensatory picks still to be announced.
