The Cincinnati Bengals will get a third round and fourth round compensatory pick during the 2010 NFL Draft. The belief is that the third round compensation is based on Stacy Andrews leaving for the greener Philadelphia Eagles -- are we talking uniform or Benjamins? Hum. Having started eight games in 2009, the Bengals are likely receiving the fourth round compensatory pick for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Both picks will come at the end of the respective round.
This will give Cincinnati nine picks for this year's draft, including six picks through the first four rounds. Some previous compensatory picks allowed the Bengals to draft guys like Chase Coffman (don't murderously laugh), Andre Caldwell, Morgan Trent, Bernard Scott, Chinedum Ndukwe, Landon Johnson, Robert Geathers, Stacy Andrews among others.
