This now means the Packers have 11 overall picks in seven rounds.

Green Bay was tied with the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys for the most compensatory picks.

Picks are award based off players a team loses and gains in free agency.

The Packers lost six players in total: Jared Cook, Micah Hyde, Eddie Lacy, T.J. Lang, Juilus Peppers, and J.C. Tretter. They only gained Jahri Evans.

Only two teams lost more total players: The Cowboys lost 10 and gained 1; the Oakland Raiders lost 9 and gained 3.
