The 2017 Compensatory Pick Potential For All 32 Teams - Over the Cap
Most of my efforts regarding the NFL’s compensatory pick system have been explanatory, but occasionally I’ll offer some opinions as to how teams can manage the system.

There may not be a piece of advice as clear cut this year, but there are some observations that can be made as we approach 2016’s free agency season as to whether or not it’s worth it for each team to care about 2017 compensatory picks.
