Rams not awarded any compensatory picks in 2018 NFL Draft
The Chargers now have seven draft picks in 2018, including one in each round.
Compensatory picks are positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.
The formula considered the Patriots losing LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long, Barkevious Mingo, Logan Ryan and Jabaal Sheard, and adding Stephon Gilmore, Rex Burkhead and Lawrence Guy. The Arizona Cardinals earned three of the 32 compensatory draft picks, including the earliest compensatory pick in the third round.
The formula for determining where in that four-round range a pick falls is not precisely known but is based on the player's salary, playing time and postseason honors. Their 218th pick is their last scheduled pick as of now.
The Steelers now have seven picks including two fifth-round choices and two seventh-round picks.
