The full 2011 NFL draft order remains unknown for at least a few more days pending revelation of compensatory selections.
In the meantime, I’ve put together a chart showing how many picks in each round NFC West teams hold.
I’ll provide a more comprehensive breakdown once the NFL announces compensatory picks, awarded to teams that suffered net losses in unrestricted free agency. The league generally announces compensatory choices during its spring owners meetings, which begins Monday in New Orleans. I’m attending those meetings and will update this chart from there.
Seattle, having lost Nate Burleson and Cory Redding in unrestricted free agency, could be in position to pick up a compensatory fourth-rounder. The team already has the fourth-round choice it acquired from New England in the Deion Branch trade. That pick originated in Denver and is the second pick in the round, at least until compensatory choices come out.
The fourth-rounder from New England and two fifth-round picks would put Seattle in position to trade into the third round, at least conceivably. Seattle has no third-rounder after trading its own to San Diego in the Charlie Whitehurst deal. Teams cannot trade compensatory picks.
