Compensatory Picks

For each draft, the NFL awards at least 32 additional picks for certain players, coaches and executives who depart from their previous teams. Appendix V of the CBA and 2020 Resolution JC-2A govern the rules of the compensatory draft system. Visit OTC's compensatory formula page and read this explainer to better understand how compensatory picks are assigned.

On the cancellation charts, players that are projected to be eligible to earn their former team a compensatory pick are highlighted in their former team's colors. Please note that the charts do not account for compensatory picks that may not be awarded due to falling below the 32-pick limit or exceeding the maximum of four per team. Also, compensatory picks awarded via 2020 Resolution JC-2A are not included on the charts, as they are awarded separately.
