The Jets Receive No Compensatory Picks

Al Bello

Unfortunately, the team will not receive any additional picks.

As we projected, the New York Jets will not receive any compensatory picks. This isn't a particular surprise. You can read the specifics of who received what here. The formula is a secret, but here is what the release had to say about how the picks are determined:

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

Here are a few interesting tidbits that I've picked out:

  • The Miami Dolphins are the only team in the AFC East to receive a compensatory pick, with two.
  • The Jets are tied for second fewest compensatory picks since 1994, with nine.
  • The San Francisco 49ers will enter the 2013 NFL Draft with seventeen draft picks.

While this wasn't much of a surprise, next year the team should expect considerably more compensatory picks. My early prediction is four.

The team will have seven draft selections this year, with one in each round.
