Post 2012 NFL Draft Compensatory Picks
NFL announces 32 compensatory draft choices to 15 teams
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 26, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

[Editor's note: The NFL has formally announced the awarding of compensatory picks for the 2012 NFL draft. The league's full announcement appears below.]

A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2012 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 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 221 choices in the seven rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft (April 26-28), which will kick off in primetime for the third consecutive year.

The first round will be held on Thursday, April 26 and begin at 8:00 PM ET. The second and third rounds are set for Friday, April 27 at 7:00 PM ET followed by rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 28 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 formula.

Three clubs this year (Atlanta, San Diego and Buffalo) 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 performance).

Thirty compensatory picks were awarded to clubs based upon the compensatory pick formula. By rule, two additional choices were awarded at the end of the seventh round to bring the total number of compensatory selections to 32, equaling the number of NFL clubs. The two additional picks were awarded to St. Louis and Indianapolis based upon the 2012 draft selection order.

The following 2012 compensatory draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council:


4/131/New York Giants
4/132/Green Bay
4/133/Green Bay


6/202/New York Jets
6/203/New York Jets

7/241/Green Bay
7/242/New York Jets
7/243/Green Bay
7/244/New York Jets
7/250/San Diego
7/252/St. Louis

I will not put on blinders when it comes to our QBs performances.

not surprising given we signed Tulloch, Durant, and Wright last year. I'm not a big fan of the whole comp pick system.

Yeah didn't expect us to get one. As long as we don't sign anybody of note from another team, we should be in line for one next year since we lost Wright to a big contract with the Bucs. Probably a 5th rounder.

determined by a proprietary formula based on the player's salary, playing time, and postseason honors with his new team, with salary being the primary factor

$37.5 over 5 years is $7.5mil a year, so that would put us around 4th round pick. Since we signed Lacey, that would probably push us back to a 7th since we gained equal, but wright's contract would give us something of an advantage. Say we draft Kirkpatrick and Lacey gets cut, then we could move back up, but I think that's unlikely. Lacey would probably outlast Bmac and Smith. Having 21 of 22 starters coming back is worth more than a 7th rounder next year though. We're finally at the point where we would get comp picks in the future though. Haven't been able to say that for awhile.

The NFL also released the full draft order today. We get a 7th from Seattle.
