NFL Announces Compensatory Picks

Jennings (Jeff Hanisch - USA Today Sports)

The Packers received a third-round selection for Greg Jennings and a fifth-round choice for Erik Walden, the NFL announced at the league meetings on Monday.

A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2014 NFL Draft were awarded to 13 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.

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.

The Packers have received 33 additional picks since the first compensatory picks were handed out beginning in 1994. Only Baltimore (40) has been given more selections.

The additional picks cannot be traded.
