Colts awarded no compensatory picks in 2018 NFL Draft


The NFL released its compensation picks for the 2018 NFL draft, and as expected the Patriots got one.

Teams are eligible for compensatory draft choices if a team loses more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires the previous year.

The Packers earned a fourth-round pick, two fifth-round picks, and one sixth-round pick in addition to the picks they already own in each round. Receiving four picks was tied for the most in the National Football League along with 14 other teams.

The NFL introduced the compensatory formula in 1994. Both the Bengals and Packers are receiving the maximum of four compensatory picks as are Dallas and Oakland.

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

It's worth noting comp picks can be traded, so they can trade No. 136.

Compensatory picks were previously not allowed to be traded, until a rule change allowed dealing such picks starting in 2017.

The Chargers now have seven draft picks in 2018, including one in each round.

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.

The Browns used three compensatory picks in 2016 to select tight end Seth DeValve at No. 138, wide receiver Rashard Higgins at No. 172 and defensive back Trey Caldwell at No. 173.
