Compensatory pick roundup

By ESPN.com staff

The NFL on Monday awarded 32 compensatory draft picks to 19 teams, including a league-high four to the New England Patriots. In essence, teams receive compensatory picks if their previous year's free-agent losses outweigh their free-agent gains. The 32 compensatory choices are added to the 223 choices in the seven rounds of the draft. This year, the compensatory picks are in Rounds 3-7.
