    That's correct. We will get either a 3rd or 4th for Finny. We lost significantly more free agents than we signed ( I think it was actually 3 or 4 more).

    The biggest indicator of comp pick value is contract value. Finnegan's contract is $10m/yr. Last year the Raiders got a 3 for Nmandi A (abt $11m/yr) and the Vikings got a 4 for Rice (abt $8m/yr). Finnegan will be either a 3 or a 4 and with his high level of play and significant playing time, it may bump up to a 3.

    I also think we get a 5 or a 6 for Jason Jones.

    No way in heck. He has like 4 tackles on the season, barely plays.

    I would love Chris Ivory, but he is a RFA and we are unlikely to be able to get him without trading away a pick. I think the Saints will put a 1st round tender on him, but he could probably be had in a trade for a 3rd or a 4th round pick.

    Have we lost more than we gained last off-season? I can't really remember the details.

    Productivity isn't a factor. The formula isn't public, but it is essentially based on the player's contract value, with an adjustment for playing time and a smaller adjustment for any post-season honours.

    Jones' contract was $4.5m/yr which is probably a straight-out 5th on it's own. He has been averaging between 40 and 65% of snaps, which is below average for a DT, but not significantly so. I would suggest that will slip him down to a 6th.

    We lost:
    Finnegan
    Jones
    Avery
    Ruud
    Hayes

    We signed:
    Wimbley

    Hutchinson wasn't a UFA (he was cut)

    That means only our top-4 losses are eligible and I don't think Avery or Ruud will generate us a comp pick (maybe a 7th at best).

    According to Wiki, productivity is included. If it's not public, how do you know?

    In '11 we lost Babin & Tulloch -- we recv'd a 4th.
    Babin signed a 5yr/27mil contract & was a Pro-Bowler
    Tully signed a 5yr/25mil contract

    We lost:
    Finnegan
    Jake Scott
    Jason Jones
    William Hayes
    Chris Hope
    Barrett Ruud
    Ahmard Hall

    We Re/Signed:
    Dave Ball

    Steve Hutchinson
    Kamerion Wimbley

    It would be silly for the Saints to 1st round tender Ivory. The compensation required for a 1st round tender is too high for a 4th string RB.
