Bucs Do Not Receive Compensatory Picks

A lot of compensatory picks were handed out, but none to the Bucs. And actually, the picks handed out in the third and fourth rounds will push the Bucs back in the fourth and fifth rounds by a total of nine picks. What would suck is if Bruce Allen legitimately thought that someone he wanted in the fifth round wouldn't be available by his slot and he didn't have a seventh rounder to throw at some team to move up a couple notches because he pissed it away on the Jake Plummer gamble. But what are the odds of that happening?

(the answer is about 2:1).
