Ravens receive four compensatory picks in upcoming NFL draft

Dannell Ellerbe's departure hurt the Ravens during the 2013 season but it helped them for the 2014 draft.

The Ravens know what they're doing when it comes to adding picks to the draft.

Since 1994, no NFL team has received more compensatory picks than the Baltimore Ravens.

That trend continued on Monday, with the Ravens receiving four additional picks for the upcoming NFL draft. The Ravens add a third-rounder (99th overall), two fourth-rounders (134th and 138th overall) and a fifth-rounder (175th overall). This is great for a Ravens team that had just four draft picks otherwise.

Now that all of Baltimore's draft picks are set in stone, the fun among the mock draft prognosticators can begin. It will be interesting to see which players the Baltimore Beatdown community believe the Ravens will take. And I'll do my best to take a stab at a seven-round Ravens mock in the coming days.

This year, the Ravens tied with the New York Jets as receiving the most compensatory picks. The Ravens received these four due to Dannell Ellerbe, Ed Reed, Cary Williams and Paul Kruger leaving during last year's free agency period.

Since teams were awarded compensatory picks beginning in 1994, Baltimore has been given 41, which is eight more than Dallas and Green Bay, which have been given 33 apiece.
