NFL will reportedly allow teams to trade compensatory picks

Changes are coming to the NFL in the 2016 NFL Draft, as the league will allow teams to trade compensatory picks. That will make teams much more active on the trade market and could mean much more excitement throughout the first couple rounds of the draft.

There are plenty of teams that know how to work the free agency market to bring in compensatory picks.

For first time this spring, NFL expected to allow teams to begin trading compensatory draft picks, per NFL sources. Should be more trades.

Increasing the number of trades each year would definitely make draft day more exciting for the fans. If the excitement increased, the ratings would skyrocket in a big way.

Some teams are going to have more pieces to work with, while others are going to be going out and bringing free agents in.

It will be intriguing to find out which way works the best.

Expect to see this system work out very well for the NFL and for the number of trades to increase in a big way in the 2016 NFL Draft.
