    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>We know what the <a href="/blogs/afcsouth/0-8-107/Compensatory-pick-details--pick-totals.html" target="_blank">compensatory picks are</a> for the four teams of the AFC South in the upcoming draft.</p> <p>But what have they meant in past drafts?</p> <p>Using the great website <a href="http://drafthistory.com/" target="_blank">drafthistory.com</a>, I looked at all the picks the Colts, Jaguars, Texans and Titans have made after the 32nd pick in rounds three through seven since 2004.</p> <p>The scorecard is unsurprising. The Colts, who've let a lot of players who made big contributions leave via free agency, have had 10 compensatory selections; the Titans have had eight; the Jaguars and Texans three each.</p> <p>There are some significant names on the list of players acquired with those picks:</p> <p><strong>Indianapolis:</strong> Center <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11435">Steve Justice</a>, running back <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11436">Mike Hart</a>, defensive tackle <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10542">Quinn Pit****</a>, linebacker <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10579">Clint Session</a>, safety <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9793">Antoine Bethea</a>, linebacker <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8587">Tyjuan Hagler</a>.</p> <p><strong>Titans:</strong> Running back <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9832">Quinton Ganther</a>, receiver <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8550">Roydell Williams</a>, guard <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5764">Eugene Amano</a>.</p> <p><strong>Jacksonville:</strong> Defensive end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5774">Bobby McCray</a>.</p> <p><strong>Houston:</strong> Receiver <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9837">David Anderson</a>.</p>
