As expected, due to the Packers' activity in free agency a year ago, Green Bay will not be receiving any compensatory picks in this year's NFL Draft.
From the NFL's Release:
A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2020 NFL Draft have been awarded to 15 teams, the NFL announced today.
Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents (“CFA”) than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.
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. No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year. If a club qualifies for more than four compensatory picks after offsetting each CFA lost by each CFA gained of an equal or higher value, the four highest remaining selections will be awarded to the club.
Minnesota received three compensatory picks, while Chicago picked up one and Detroit received zero, among teams in the NFC North.
