Packers receive four compensatory picks in 2018 NFL Draft

Packers receive four compensatory picks in 2018 NFL Draft

The picks were awarded to 15 teams total, with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders tied for the most at four apiece.

Thirty-two compensatory draft picks were awarded to 15 National Football League teams Friday, and the Patriots landed a fourth-round selection, coming in at No. 136 overall.

The move gives the Vikings seven picks in the seven-round draft April 26-28, including the 30th overall pick in the first round. Both picks are in the sixth round.

Arizona will not have a sixth-round pick, as they traded it to the New Orleans Saints last season for Adrian Peterson.




The draft picks Arizona received Friday were the No. 97 overall pick landing in the third round, the No. 134 pick landing the fourth round and the No. 254 pick in the final, seventh round. This marks the first time since 2011 that Tampa Bay has been awarded a compensatory pick. All but six of the picks awarded in 2017 came in Round 5 or higher, compared to just 14 this year.

This year the Steelers will be without one of the 32 picks. The year prior, safeties Justin Simmons (No. 98) and Will Parks (No. 219), as well as running back Devontae Booker (No. 136) were taken with compensatory picks.

Most expected the Packers to gain four extra picks after losing several top players in free agency last offseason.
