NFL announces compensatory picks for 2021 Draft


The NFL has awarded compensatory draft picks for teams in the 2021 draft.

These selections are awarded to the teams that suffered the most significant free-agent losses during the 2020 offseason. This year, the NFL awarded 36 competitive picks. The compensation selection formula assigns picks that suffered the highest net losses, so teams that signed multiple free agents are less likely to receive picks. The Cowboys top the list (shared below) with four picks, the league’s most.

There was a change in the formula this year, with the NFL awarding four picks to teams that saw one of its minority members become a head coach or general manager. The 49ers, Rams, Ravens and Saints had third-round picks this year. They will host more third-round games in 2022. The Rams added a third round after losing the director of college exploration. Brad Holmes (GM Lions); Ravens lost quarterback coach David culley (Texans HC); the Saints lost GM’s assistant Terry fontenot (Falcons GM). Losing VP of player personnel Martin Mayhew (Washington GM) and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh (Jets HC), the 49ers will also have an additional third-round pick in 2023.
