No Compensatory Selections For Vikings; Total Picks Stand At 11

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 19, 2013 – 6:29 am

The NFL awarded 32 compensatory picks to 16 teams on Monday, but the Vikings were not among the teams who received the additional draft stock. As such, the Vikings total draft selections for the 2013 NFL Draft remains at 11.

Here’s a breakdown of the Vikings 11 picks:
— 1st round – #23 (#23 overall)
— 1st round – #25 (#25 overall)
— 2nd round – #22 (#52 overall)
— 3rd round – #21 (#83 overall)
— 4th round – #5 (#102 overall)
— 4th round – #23 (#120 overall)
— 5th round – #22 (#155 overall)
— 6th round – #21 (#189 overall)
— 7th round – #7 (#213 overall)
— 7th round – #8 (#214 overall)
— 7th round – #23 (#229 overall)

How do compensatory selections work?
The number of compensatory picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced on Monday will supplement the 222 choices in the 7rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27). This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the 3rd through 7th 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 team is covered by this formula

For the fourth consecutive year, the NFL will hold its annual draft in prime time. The 1st round will be held Thursday, April 25 and begin at 7 p.m. CT. The 2nd and 3rd rounds are set for Friday, April 26 at 5:30 p.m. CT, followed by Rounds 4 through 7 on Saturday, April 27 at 11 a.m. CT.
