2013 NFL compensatory picks announced!

Posted: March 19, 2013 in 2013 NFL Draft, Views and opinions

During the NFL’s annual Owners Meeting (League meetings if you will) the NFL hands out compensatory picks to teams. A compensatory pick is based on if a team has lost more free agents or better quality players than what they signed in the previous year. This year the NFL has 32 additional picks to the 2013 NFL Draft.

It is an intricate process to figure out but basically if a team has gained or lost a certain amount of players or they lose big time free agents to other teams, they are entitled to a seventh round pick. Some picks are higher as they are based on  salary, playing time, and postseason accolades with whatever team they decide to sign with. One small caveat is that you cannot trade these picks, so these are set in stone. 2007 NFL Draft
