Patriots awarded four compensatory picks in 2019 NFL Draft



While the Packers won't receive any additional draft picks this year, Gutekunst deserves credit for the amount of picks he has been able to add since taking over as general manager.

The Cowboys have had success with compensatory picks in recent years.

Keim turned out to be close, but he undersold his situation. 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.

2019's Biggest "Supermoon" | February 19
At its farthest point from the Earth, the Moon is in apogee syzygy , and stargazers might notice a small-looking "micromoon". In recent years, traditional Native American names for the full moons have become more common in modern day parlance.

The National Football League finally announced its full slate of compensatory picks for the 2019 NFL Draft and the Kansas City Chiefs came out one pick richer with an extra sixth-round choice that comes in at No. 214 overall. No team can receive more than four compensatory picks in one draft. In that swap, the Cardinals sent their original seventh-round pick - also first in the round - the Tampa Bay. Picks are assigned to teams through a formula weighting the number of players a team lost via free agency versus the number of free agents it signed. The seventh-round picks are No. 248, 249 and 254. They lost six free agents: offensive linemen Justin Pugh, Weston Richburg, and D.J. Fluker, linebacker Devon Kennard, cornerback Ross Cockrell, and quarterback Geno Smith.

The Cards are one of three teams to earn four extra picks.

The Los Angeles Rams, Cincinnati Bengals and Minnesota Vikings received three each.
