Bucs Awarded Fourth-Round Compensatory Pick

Bucs Awarded Fourth-Round Compensatory Pick

No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year.

For example, if cornerback Chris Harris left Denver and signed a $14 million-per-year contract with another team and the Broncos replaced him with a $4 million-year-year cornerback, Denver would likely receive a comp pick for Harris in 2021.

With under seven weeks until the 2020 NFL Draft, 15 teams were awarded compensatory selections on Tuesday.

The Eagles were awarded the extra picks due to the compensatory pick formula that weighs the players lost and gained during an offseason. 252 and 254). OTC projects that the fifth-round selection was awarded for losing offensive lineman Billy Turner last offseason.

The Vikings now will open the 2020 NFL Draft with 10 selections.

The only time the Buccaneers have received a compensatory pick higher than the fourth round was in 1997, when they landed a third-rounder and used it on linebacker Alshermond Singleton.

The Bears included their first- and third-round picks in the Mack deal and traded their fourth-round choice to the Patriots past year to move up to select running back David Montgomery in the third round. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. "They've given you more ability to move up and down in the draft by moving those picks".

That leaves the Steelers with a second-round pick, the 49th overall selection, the compensatory pick at the end of the third round, two fourth-round picks - Miami's and their own - and one pick each in the sixth and seventh rounds.
