I love O'Reilly but for Colorado not to match an offer sheet I imagine it'd have to be a ridiculous deal we'd be offering.
If the picks don't have to be for the upcoming draft..then I'd be interested.
The picks do have to be for the draft subsequent to offer sheet. Here's the compensation, and remember the AAV for draft-pick compensation purposes is calculated by dividing the total money by 5:
Here are the draft pick compensation figures for the 2012-13 season:
$1,110,249 or below – No Compensation
Over $1,110,249 to $1,682,194 – 3rd round pick
Over $1,682,194 to $3,364,391 – 2nd round pick
Over $3,364,391 to $5,046,585 – 1st round pick, 3rd
Over $5,046,585 to $6,728,781 – 1st round pick, 2nd, 3rd
Over $6,728,781 To $8,410,976 – Two 1st Round Picks, 2nd, 3rd
Over $8,410,976 – Four 1st Round Picks
I'd be aiming for that bolded line. My goal would be to only give up one 1st (and a 2nd + 3rd), if possible, and maximize the amount of money in that range to make it as difficult as possible on Colorado. Thus, I'd offer O'Reilly 6yrs/$33.625m.
On our cap, that'd be a manageable $5.6m cap hit. For purposes of draft pick compensation, that'd be $6.725m, so just under the ceiling for a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and not quite in that two 1sts range.
