Projecting the comp picks

Thought I'd throw this up, paying particular attention to the Seahawks. This guy has been doing this for years and is pretty good at projecting the formula the NFL uses for comp picks. I'll paraphrase a bit for those of you who hate reading. He only projects a seventh rounder:

SEVENTH ROUND

Seattle (Floyd Womack, $950,000, 13/9)

As you know, our last offseason went something like this:

SEATTLE

Lost: Rocky Bernard, Maurice Morris, Leonard Weaver, Floyd Womack

Signed: T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Colin Cole, John Owens

Notice that some of these cancel each other out, although it might not play out exactly like this. The league could decide values a little differently. Later in the article:

If Bobby Engram qualifies, Seattle will receive a seventh-round comp pick for him immediately before its comp pick for Floyd Womack.

If John Owens does not qualify, Seattle will receive a seventh-round comp pick for Leonard Weaver, between Tennessee's comp picks for Eric King and Daniel Loper.

If Floyd Womack does not qualify, Seattle will not receive a comp pick for him.

Anyway, read through the whole article. AdamJT13 knows what he's talking about and I guarantee you'll learn something about the vague compensatory pick process.

The whole thing got me thinking about last year's free agent period. Looking at the acquisitions and with hindsight now available, do you think it was a good offseason? Bad offseason? Where could we have better spent our money?
