Raiders Awarded Compensatory Pick in 2013 NFL Draft

Posted Mar 18, 2013

The Raiders have been awarded one compensatory draft selection – 6th round, 37th pick in the round, 205th overall - in the 2013 NFL Draft.


The Raiders have been awarded one compensatory draft selection – 6th round, 37th pick in the round, 205th overall - in the 2013 NFL Draft. A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2013 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced today.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.  The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year.

The first round will be held on Thursday, April 25 and begin at 5:00 PM PT.  The second and third rounds are set for Friday, April 26 at 3:30 PM PT followed by rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 27 at 9:00 a.m. PT.

This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.  The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council.  Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. 

Two clubs this year (Indianapolis and the New York Giants) will each receive a compensatory pick even though they did not suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents last year.  Under the formula, the compensatory free agents lost by these clubs were ranked higher than the ones they signed (by a specified point differential based upon salary and performance).
