As expected, the Buffalo Bills were not awarded any compensatory selections in the 2014 draft.

The NFL announced its allotment of compensatory draft picks at their annual spring meeting Monday. The selections are awarded based on net free-agency losses from the prior offseason.

Last spring, the Bills lost guards Andy Levitre and Chad Rinehart, but signed linebacker Manny Lawson and Alan Branch. While large contracts -- like the one Levitre received from the Tennessee Titans -- figure into the compensatory pick equation, ultimately it's a net loss of free agents that matters the most.

The Bills hold their original selections in each round of the 2014 NFL draft, held May 8-10.
