What are compensatory draft picks and how do they work in the NFL?

For a team to be eligible for compensatory picks, it "must end up with more or better qualifying free agents lost than gained in a particular year," per The league then awards comp picks between Rounds 3 through 7 based on a confidential formula that considers a player's average salary, snap count and postseason awards.

Teams also get a "special compensatory pick" in the third round in consecutive drafts if they lose a minority coach or executive to a head coach or general manager position with a different club. The 49ers and Rams each got a special comp pick this year.

The 2024 draft is scheduled to run from April 25-27 in Detroit.
