The Cleveland Browns already own 12 draft picks this year.
The Vikings fourth-round pick was traded to Philadelphia as part of the Sam Bradford trade in 2016, and the team's seventh-round pick was traded to the Seahawks for CB Tramaine Brock, Sr. last September.
The NFL officially announced compensatory picks on Friday, and the Giants get the extra fourth-rounder because defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins signed with the Indianapolis Colts during free agency past year. The most notable loss Denver had last offseason, which led to them receiving the third-best compensatory pick in the league this year, was tackle Russell Okung who signed a four-year, $53 million contract with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Some notable players the Patriots have selected via compensatory picks in recent drafts include defensive linemen Vincent Valentine and Geneo Grissom, offensive linemen Ted Karras and Cameron Fleming and linebacker Elandon Roberts.
Cincinnati, Dallas, Green Bay and Oakland each received the maximum of 4 compensatory picks the league announced on Friday.
While all the draft pick numbers aren't official, the Packers should have the following picks: Nos.
Depending on what they gave up to acquire Marcus Peters, the Rams may not have many picks in the 2018 draft.
In the Giants' case, the equation had them losing DT Johnathan Hankins, OL Marshall Newhouse, DB Coty Sensabaugh and K Robbie Gould. They added quarterback Geno Smith and tight end Rhett Ellison.
