The how is secretive, but to qualify you must have had a greater number of UFAs sign elsewhere than you signed. Then you get picks. Value of the contracts signed matters secondarily, as does playing time for the players you lost. Then some teams just get picks in the 7th round because they had a poor record the year before (in this case, that's why Indy gets #253).

Listen carefully to what GTripp has to say here. He has cut down to the core of this matter right here...

I think this is how they determine them.

because they let their FAs walk. look at the bottom of the article, they lost like 5 players and signed NONE. so that's why.

and for why the system exists - it gives teams that want to be cheap or get burnt by losing a good player a token to make up for it. I don't really think it's needed, but i assume enough owners like it (the ones that typically avoid big FA sprees) that they won't be crying out to get it removed any time soon.
