NFL Draft 2018: Chiefs earn 1 compensatory draft pick

NFL Draft 2018: Chiefs earn 1 compensatory draft pick”

The National Football League announced the compensatory draft picks for the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft, and the Kansas City Chiefs will be receiving one extra pick in the process, at the tail end of the sixth round.

Compensatory picks are rewarded based on a formula that compares what a team lost or gained in free agency the previous year, looking at both salaries and on-field performance.

The last time Tampa Bay owned a compensatory pick, in 2011, it was a seventh-rounder that was used on Idaho tight end Daniel Hardy, who did not make the team.

The Indianapolis Colts may have torn down the roster in the 2017 offseason and allowed several players to walk in free agency but they still won't be awarded any compensatory picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. That changed with the NFL's announcement of this year's compensatory picks. The Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys each were awarded four.

However, because of the size of the contract to Calais Campbell, Arizona actually gets the very first compensatory pick of the draft, the 33rd pick in the third round.

The Packers will receive an additional fourth-round pick (133rd overall), two fifth-round selections (No. 172, 174) and a sixth-rounder (207) as compensation after losing G T.J. Lang, S Micah Hyde, DE Julius Peppers and TE Jared Cook when their contracts expired past year.

Compensatory picks can now be traded, meaning the 15 teams that received them now have more ammo when it comes to trading up or acquiring veterans.
