No 2020 comp picks on the docket for the Arizona Cardinals

NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals completely overhauled their 2019 roster after a disastrous 2018 season.

With that came a number of free agent signings and 11 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Many of those 2019 picks were of the compensatory type, after the Cardinals had a mini renovation from their 2017 season heading into 2018.

Now, with the 2019 offseason moves all but done, there are surely smaller moves left to make, Over the Cap has done their annual compensatory pick calculations and it looks like next year the Cardinals will be without any compensatory picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

This speaks to the poor draft picks for the Cardinals in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, as they have three players from both drafts, all from 2015, left on the roster and received only one comp pick for any of them.

Kareem Martin was the only pick from the 2014 draft that netted the Cardinals a compensatory pick, a sixth rounder.

The Cardinals have 2015 picks D.J. Humphries and Rodney Gunter under contract for this season, with David Johnson being the only pick of the last two years with any type of long contract extension.

Let’s hope that Humphries and Gunter play well and are able to join Johnson as long term Arizona Cardinals... Or at least play well enough to net a compensatory pick or two, since it seems highly unlikely any are coming from the 2016 draft class.
