NFL ANNOUNCES 32 COMPENSATORY DRAFT CHOICES TO 15 CLUBS

A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2018 NFL Draft have been awarded to 15 teams, the NFL announced today.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents (“CFA”) than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

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.  No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year.  If a club qualifies for more than four compensatory picks after offsetting each CFA lost by each CFA gained of an equal or higher value, the four highest remaining selections will be awarded to the club.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement limits the number of compensatory selections to the number of clubs then in the League (32).  This year, five clubs: the Atlanta Falcons, the Baltimore Ravens, the Houston Texans, the New England Patriots, and the New York Giants qualified for compensatory selections under the net loss formula, but will not receive those picks because the final numerical values of the CFAs who were lost by those clubs ranked 33rd through 37th among the final numerical values of all compensatory selections.  Each of those five clubs will receive compensatory selections for other CFAs lost whose final numerical values ranked within the top 32.

The following 2018 compensatory draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council for the 2018 NFL Draft, which will be held on April 26-28 in Dallas:
