A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2013 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced Monday. 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 compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year. The first round will be held on Thursday, April 25 and begin at 8 p.m. ET. The second and third rounds are set for Friday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. ET followed by Rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 27 at noon ET. This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.
