The NFL announced 32 compensatory picks for the 2018 draft on Friday. Green Bay will have picks in the fourth (No. 133), the fifth (No. 172,174), and sixth (No. 207) rounds of the draft. It's based on the salary, playing time and any postseason honors those players earn during the previous season and is weighed against the team's own additions. 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. Receiving four picks was tied for the most in the National Football League along with 14 other teams. The Packers lost T.J. Lang, Jared Cook and Micah Hyde, among others, last offseason, while the Cowboys watched Ronald Leary, Barry Church, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne depart. All compensatory picks are awarded at the end of Rounds 3 through 7.

Regardless, the Colts are another step closer to the draft, even if they will be without compensatory picks. The year prior, safeties Justin Simmons (No. 98) and Will Parks (No. 219), as well as running back Devontae Booker (No. 136) were taken with compensatory picks.
