Arizona Cardinals not projected to have any compensatory picks in 2021 NFL Draft

The Arizona Cardinals need as much help to add talent as they can get, but they will not be getting any of it through the compensatory picks process.

The folks at Over The Cap released their annual projections for compensatory picks heading into the NFL Draft and the Arizona Cardinals are not projected to have any.

Not surprising when you look at who the Cardinals lost in the free agency last offseason, but the Cardinals could sure use some extra picks without having to move down too much.

That’s been one of the bigger issues for the Cardinals recently, is not having any players hitting free agency that are worth getting comp picks for.

That’s not to say comp picks are the be all end all of talent evaluation, but the reality is that the players starting to be eligible would be from the 2016 NFL Draft and we all know how that ended up.

This offseason could yield one depending on what happens with Haason Reddick, but for the most part, the 2015-2018 NFL Drafts yielded D.J. Humphries and a piece of the DeAndre Hopkins trade. Let’s hope that changes soon.
