Ravens Get Four Compensatory Picks

The NFL officially awards 32 Compensatory Draft Picks to 16 different teams today.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens received four of them, the most of any team along with the Atlanta Falcons. The four Ravens picks include a 4th round selection (33rd in round, 130th overall), a 5th round selection (35th in round, 168th overall), a 6th round selection (35th in round, 203rd overall) and a 7th round pick (41st in round, 237th overall).

The Ravens lost six free agents after the 2011 season, Ben Grubbs, Jarret Johnson, Brandon McKinney, Haruki Nakamura, Cory Redding and Tom Zbikowski. They signed free agents Sean Considine and Corey Graham. Since 1994, when Compensatory Picks were first awarded, the Ravens have received more than any other NFL team (37).

Attached is the full press release from the NFL with all the picks and which team lost and signed what players:


A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2013 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced today.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires

in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32

compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April

25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year.

The first round will be held on Thursday, April 25 and begin at 8:00 PM ET. The second and third rounds are set for

Friday, April 26 at 6:30 PM ET followed by rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 27 at Noon ET.

This year, 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


Two clubs this year (Indianapolis and the New York Giants) will each receive a compensatory pick even though they did

not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents last year. Under the formula, the compensatory free agents lost by

these clubs were ranked higher than the ones they signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and
