The Falcons were awarded two compensatory picks for the 2019 NFL Draft -a fourth- and a fifth-round pick. The pick is slated to be No. 212 overall. Three teams, the Washington Redskins (No. 96 overall), Carolina Panthers (No. 100 overall) and Baltimore Ravens (No. 102 overall) each got one third-round pick.
Among the four compensatory free agents they lost last offseason, the Rams notably lost cornerback Trumaine Johnson and Sammy Watkins last offseason. On the flip side, few players whose contracts with the Browns expired (not cut or waived) signed contracts for much value to offset the spending.
Prior to 2017, compensatory picks could not be traded, as the Bucs did with their choice a year ago.
Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive the picks. Overall, in 23 years of compensatory picks being awarded, the Buccaneers have been given 19 of them.
