2013 compensatory picks announced

A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2013 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced today.   

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. 

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.  The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year. 

The first round will be held on Thursday, April 25 and begin at 8:00 PM ET.  The second and third rounds are set for Friday, April 26 at 6:30 PM ET followed by rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 27 at Noon ET. 

This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost. 

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council.  Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.   

Two clubs this year (Indianapolis and the New York Giants) will each receive a compensatory pick even though they did not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents last year. Under the formula, the compensatory free agents lost by these clubs were ranked higher than the ones they signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and performance).
