    Question Who should the Steelers take with their compensatory picks?

    Total of 4 picks in the 7th round now, their original 7th rounder plus 3 comp picks just announced today at the owners meetings.

    @ScottBrown_Trib: Steelers awarded three compensatory picks in seventh round. That gives them four seventh-round picks in this year's draft.

    Use them to trade up in the other rounds!
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Sadly you can't trade compensatory picks.

    That is interesting. I honestly did not know that. 3 picks in the seventh round is just so... well not useless, but I'm not exactly happy about it either. It is just 3 more bodies who most likely won't see the field ever.

    I agree with you to an extent; however, it does allow them to grab a few fringe players that normally would be a UDFA gamble. Also don't forget that players like FWP, Kiesel,Redman, Batch were all late round draft picks or UDFA. If they do their homework there can be significant value there.

    They obviously can get value there, I'm just not at all sure they will. Don't get me wrong, I don't complain about getting extra draft picks... You'd be a strange person to do so, but I'm just not jumping up and down over it. I'm always a proponent of getting fewer and better picks rather than many late round picks. There is just too many Frank Summers per Antonio Browns.
