In total, 32 compensatory picks were given to 16 teams.
When Norman signed a five-year, $75 million deal with Washington days after Carolina rescinded his franchise tag last spring, it essentially assured the Panthers would be getting a high comp pick.
The Seahawks received good news from the National Football League on Friday in the form of two additional third-round picks in the 2017 draft as compensation for players lost via free agency a year ago. Cincinnati figures to lose a few of them, so expect multiple compensatory picks to be awarded to the Bengals next year as well.
Also, the recent retirement of Pat McAfee created a major void on special teams, and the Colts have been able to address that situation through late-round picks. This year, for the first time, those picks can be traded.
This Topic is Missing Your Voice.. As expected, the Eagles were not awarded a pick because, in simple terms, they signed more free agents than they lost.
Boone joined the 49ers in 2010 as an undrafted free agent after playing tackle at Ohio State.
The pick, which is in the fifth round, will be No. 181 overall. Last year, the Packers had two fourth-round compensatory picks and used them on LB Blake Martinez and DE Dean Lowry. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. The third-round selection and one of the fourth-round picks are owned by other teams, though, because of previous trades. Another move involving a comp pick included trading All Pro Linebacker Jamie Collins to the Browns in November.
The 2017 National Football League draft takes place on April 27 through April 29 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
