With the National Football League announcing compensatory picks on Friday, the full seven-round draft order is now set, and as expected, the Seahawks will have four picks, having not been awarded any compensatory picks.

The pick is No. 100 overall. Picks are assigned to teams through a formula weighting the number of players a team lost via free agency versus the number of free agents it signed.

A formula takes salary, playing time and postseason honors into consideration to value players and determine whether teams should be compensated for those players leaving in free agency. Overall, in 23 years of compensatory picks being awarded, the Buccaneers have been given 19 of them. The Patriots also get two in that same range after having six unrestricted free agents depart previous year, including Danny Amendola, Malcolm Butler and Nate Solder. In addition, New England has a fourth-round pick (No. 134), a sixth-rounder (No. 205), and four seventh-rounders (No. 239 via the Eagles, No. 243 via the Browns, No. 246, and No. 252).

In the Cardinals' press conference following the season, General Manager Steve Keim noted the benefits of having early picks in every draft round.

Minnesota received a sixth-round pick (209th overall) as well as two choices in the seventh round (247, 250). That means the Jacksonville Jaguars now have the No. 98 overall pick locked in with their other selections, which was originally given to them by the Los Angeles Rams in October through the Dante Fowler Jr. trade.
