NFC North compensatory picks awarded

March, 22, 2010
ORLANDO, Fla. -- I'm coming through on half of my early-morning promise. We won't get a glimpse of the 2010 schedule until Tuesday, but ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the entire list of 2010 compensatory draft picks awarded to each team. (Remember: The exact formula is unknown, but in essence teams receive compensatory picks if their previous year's free-agent losses outweigh their free-agent gains.)

Here's how it breaks down for the NFC North:

  • Minnesota and Green Bay each received an extra fifth-round pick. The Vikings' will be No. 167 overall and the Packers' will be No. 169.
  • Detroit received an extra seventh-round pick. It will be the No. 255 overall and should be the final pick of the draft. In that case, Mr. Irrelevant will be coming to Detroit.
