What happens with Saints soon to be forfeitted draft picks?

Recommended Posts

What do do with them? Do they just dissappear? It's inevitable that Goodell will strip them of at least their 1st round pick.

I propose they give the Rams whichever pick they forfeit, being that they're getting somewhat screwed with their new D Coordinator out of the picture for presumably half of the season, at least.

The draft is supposed to be a certain number of picks (as per the last CBA), so I would imagine that those spaces are skipped and additional comp picks are added at the end in order to make up the total.

There's just not a pick. Nothing happens to it.

Look back at the 2008 draft, the Patriots lost their first round pick as part of Spygate.

Pick #31 was the final pick of the 1st round, pick #32 was the first pick of the 2nd round.

The final pick was pick #252, normally there's 256 picks. The Pats lost a first, the 49ers lost a 5th for tampering, the Ravens used a 4th in the 07 supplemental draft and the Chargers used a 5th in the 07 supplemental draft.

It means one 7th rounder would have been drafted, but instead he's going to be a Free Agent.
