Steelers Receive 3 Compensatory Draft Picks

The NFL announced today that the Steelers will receive three compensatory picks for the upcoming 2010 NFL draft. Just as I predicted the Steelers will get two 5th round picks and one 7th round pick for the 2009 free agent loses of wide receiver Nate Washington, cornerback Bryant McFadden and quarterback Byron Leftwich in free agency last year. Washington and McFadden both qualified as 5th round compensatory picks, while Leftwich qualified for a 7th round compensatory pick. The Steelers currently have 10 draft picks they can use in the NFL draft.
