The following eight clubs get one pick each: Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots, New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cornerback Brendan Langley (No. 101) and quarterback Chad Kelly (No. 253) were chosen with two of the team's four compensatory picks in 2017.

Compensatory picks are awarded based on a specific formula weighing free agents gained the previous offseason with players that left.

NFL Vice President of Communications Michael Signora tweeted out the compensatory picks on Friday, as there were a total of 32 picks given out. The Packers were awarded four, the maximum amount per year and tied for the league lead with three other teams.
