Based on NFL compensatory rules, a team that lost better free agents than it acquired in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory picks. The formula is based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.
The Bengals lost five free agents -- including receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu and safety Reggie Nelson -- and didn't sign any.
The Browns lost six free agents -- including center Alex Mack -- while signing just one.
The Chiefs lost five free agents and signed only one.
The compensation picks begin after the conclusion of the third round. Eleven third-round picks were distributed beginning with the Dolphins having the 97th overall pick.
The rest of picks break down this way: Six after the fourth round, nine after the fifth, three after the sixth and three after the seventh.
The NFL Draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.
