2019 comp tracker

Most people have become savvy to the comp pick game by now, especially knowing John Schneider likes to play it as much as any NFL GM. With every move comes a bevy of questions from fans about how it affects the comp formula. So we’ve put together a real-time tracker, using the excellent tool created by Nick Korte at OverTheCap.com. Here are the rules guiding comp picks.

Market for Hawk UFAsIn 2018, John Schneider needed to add veteran players to a young roster, so he didn’t play the comp game like he had in previous years. He added seven UFAs and lost four — the final tally was 5-4 after he cut two guys before Week 10.

This offseason: If Schneider is able to keep D.J. Fluker and/or J.R. Sweezy, Frank Clark and Justin Coleman, he’ll have few veteran needs (pass rusher, defensive tackle, linebacker) and four top UFAs — Earl Thomas, K.J. Wright, Shamar Stephen, Mike Davis — he probably will lose.

He could very well add a couple of cap casualties on the line and a minimum-wage linebacker — leaving the Hawks with possible comp picks in rounds 3, 4, 6, 7. Even if he goes kind of big for a second pass rusher in the UFA market, he still could chalk up the 3 or 4 with the two late-round picks.
