Raiders receive four compensatory draft picks

The Indianapolis Colts may have torn down the roster in the 2017 offseason and allowed several players to walk in free agency but they still won't be awarded any compensatory picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. These are selections given as, well, compensation for free agent losses.

It's worth noting comp picks can be traded, so they can trade No. 136. Green Bay will have picks in the fourth (No. 133), the fifth (No. 172,174), and sixth (No. 207) rounds of the draft.

Even if a team loses and gains the same amount of players but lost higher valued talent, they can get a pick. The Packers lost T.J. Lang, Jared Cook and Micah Hyde, among others, last offseason, while the Cowboys watched Ronald Leary, Barry Church, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne depart.

The Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans were awarded three picks apiece, including one each in Round 3 for the departures of Calais Campbell and A.J. Bouye, respectively.

The New England Patriots can add another draft pick to their arsenal this spring. Both picks are in the sixth round.

The new pick comes just one spot from the end of the entire draft, at number 255 overall.

Compensatory picks are slotted between the third and seventh rounds.

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.
