NFL ANNOUNCES 33 COMPENSATORY DRAFT CHOICES TO 13 CLUBS

 

A total of 33 compensatory choices in the 2016 NFL Draft have been awarded to 13 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 compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through sixth rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory picks may not be traded this year.  A rule change approved by clubs in 2015 will permit compensatory draft picks to be traded beginning in 2017.

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. 

The following 2016 compensatory draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council for the 2016 NFL Draft, which will be held on April 28-30 in Chicago:
