Green Bay will have two extra selections in both the fourth and seventh rounds in April's NFL Draft, it was 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 Packers lost five compensatory free agents last offseason - Daryn Colledge, Cullen Jenkins, Korey Hall, Jason Spitz, and Brandon Jackson. The team didn't sign any compensatory free agents. Despite losing a net number of five free agents, the maximum number of picks one team may receive is four.
The selections the Packers received are the 37th and 38th in the 4th round (132nd and 133rd overall) and the 34th and 36th picks in the 7th round (241 and 243 overall)
Green Bay now has a total of 12 selections in this years draft. They have one in each of the seven rounds, with 3 in the 4th round and 4 in the 7th.
