Chargers projected to receive compensatory pick in 2024 NFL draft

In the 2024 NFL draft, the Chargers will likely have an extra pick, according to Over The Cap.

Compensatory picks are awarded to teams who lose out on significant players in free agency and are awarded to those teams the next year.

The pick given to teams is calculated on a formula that includes a number of qualifiers, including the average per year (APY) of a contract signed, the percentage of snaps a player plays, and their awards and accolades for their performance, such as the AP All-Pro list or PFWA’s list.

Over The Cap projects Los Angeles to receive a seventh-round comp pick for their loss of linebacker Drue Tranquill, who signed with the Chiefs last offseason.

Tranquill has appeared in 18 games, including the playoffs, with eight starts, and has amassed 89 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass deflected.

The NFL will announce the finalized compensatory picks closer to the draft.
