When you lose a player of the caliber of Vincent Jackson to free agency, you would think that you could get some sort of compensation when the league passes out compensatory picks. We lost Vincent Jackson and he put up nice numbers and even was in the Pro Bowl and no compensatory picks.
What did we get instead? Robert Meachem. Jarrett Johnson. Atari Bigby. Eddie Royal. Crap. Crap. More crap.
When you give up a player like VJ, you need to pick up something else in return. We tried to actually hit the free agent market last season and it took a poop all over our face. If we would have just stood pat with what we had, we could have had VJ still or we would at least get a 3rd round compensatory pick. Instead, it looks like we are getting NOTHING.
According to the site Blogging the bEast, a site that analyzes and tried to predict compensatory picks, the Chargers will be left without a compensatory selection. The Chargers will be missing out on an extra selection in a draft that has a lot of talent in the middle rounds.
