Packers don’t receive any compensatory draft picks, per report


Panthers awarded third-round compensatory pick

According to a projection by, the Cardinals received compensation for losing pass-rusher Kareem Martin (Giants), backup quarterback Drew Stanton (Browns) and receiver Jaron Brown (Seahawks) last offseason.

The NFL announced which teams will receive compensatory picks in the 2019 draft on Friday afternoon.

The most important is the first-round selection from the New Orleans Saints, giving Green Bay two in the draft's opening round (No. 12 overall and No. 30 overall). Tight end Nick Boyle and defensive end Brent Urban, both pending free agents, along with defensive tackle Willie Henry were also selected with compensatory picks.

The NFL distributes compensatory picks from the third through seventh rounds of the draft each year based on a selected pool of free agents lost.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling will say: 'The law is clear that flying a drone near an airport is a serious criminal act. Meanwhile, flights to and from Dublin Airport in Ireland were briefly halted after a drone was spotted over the airfield.

Compensatory picks are awarded to teams based on the number of players a team lost or gained in free agency the prior year.

The Bears could have a different result next year this time with big-name free agents like Bryce Callahan and Adrian Amos about to hit the open market.

The Cardinals have the first overall selection in the April 25-27 draft in Nashville, Tennessee. The team has been awarded 50 extra selections since the system started in 1994, eight more than the next-closest teams.

The Panthers don't have a seventh-round pick because they traded it to the Buffalo Bills in 2017.
