Cardinals get 3 compensatory picks in 2018 draft

Cardinals get 3 compensatory picks in 2018 draft

The most prominent player the Buccaneers have drafted using a compensatory pick is linebacker Alshermond Singleton, a 1997 fourth-round selection who started at strongside linebacker for the 2002 Super Bowl team.

The Buccaneers have been awarded an additional seventh-round pick through the compensatory system, which is based on net losses in the previous year's unrestricted free agency period.

The formula considered the Patriots losing LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long, Barkevious Mingo, Logan Ryan and Jabaal Sheard, and adding Stephon Gilmore, Rex Burkhead and Lawrence Guy.

The Browns received four compensatory picks in last year's draft and traded all of them. Both the Bengals and Packers are receiving the maximum of four compensatory picks as are Dallas and Oakland.

The Cardinals had traded offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom to the Ravens for a conditional seventh-round pick last summer, but conditions were not met and the Ravens kept the pick.

A year ago the Browns were awarded 4 picks.

They already had picks in rounds one (19th overall), two (50th), three (81st), four (116th), six (193rd) and seven (236th).

The Baltimore Ravens, who lead the National Football League with 49 compensatory picks received since 1994, garnered just one pick, a sixth-rounder.

Under NFL rules, the number of compensatory draft picks can not exceed the number of franchises. They signed tight end Rhett Ellison and quarterback Geno Smith. Find our Giants coverage on Facebook.
