Compensatory picks trade-able in 2017; Advantage to the Baltimore Ravens

Ravens won't have extra draft stock for another season

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens are great at a few things, but the one they absolutely excel at is receiving compensatory draft selections from losing key free agents year in and year out. And by 2017 they can become firepower in the draft.

There was talk this season of trade-able comp picks, and the proposal has now passed.

This means the Baltimore Ravens & all other NFL teams can now trade those comp picks to other squads. Maybe a big bonus for the Ravens as they might trade up more frequently with the extra picks at disposal.

The reason this is so big for the Baltimore Ravens is they lead the NFL in total comp picks since 2002.

Team Picks
BAL 35
STL 22
TEN 22
GB 19
PHI 19
SF 19
CIN 18
NE 18
IND 17
PIT 16
OAK 14
NYG 14
SEA 14
ATL 13
CAR 13
NYJ 13
TB 13
DAL 11
DET 11
MIA 11
CHI 10
HOU 10
SD 10
BUF 9
JAX 9
WAS 7
DEN 6
MIN 6
CLE 5
KC 5

Blatantly obvious the Baltimore Ravens have a huge adavantage as they possessed 13 more than the second place. Ravens can achieve some serious help in the draft from 2017 on.
