Comp picks could be announced today

The NFL doesn't reveal ahead of time when the compensatory draft picks will be announced, but if the league follows the same timetable as in recent years, the announcement should come today.

The comp picks typically have been announced on the second day of the Annual Meeting, which started Sunday in Orlando, Fla. Last year, when the Annual Meeting was held in California, the picks were announced just after 4:30 p.m. Pacific. If the schedule for the second day of the owners' meeting is similar this year, with the meeting being in the Eastern time zone, I would expect the announcement to come about 4:30 p.m. Eastern today. However, the announcement could come at any time today or possibly not until Tuesday.

As soon as I see that the picks have been announced, I will post them here, but they should be available at and most major media Web sites just as quickly, if not sooner. I'll also post an analysis as soon as possible and will answer any questions posted in the comments section of this blog. You do not need to register to post a comment.

UPDATE: Joe Reedy, the Bengals beat writer for the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports via his Twitter account that the announcement "could get delayed until tomorrow."

MORE UPDATES:, the Charlotte Observer and the official Twitter feed of the Washington Redskins also reported that the announcement is expected to come tomorrow.
