On Friday afternoon, the NFL which teams would be awarded with compensatory picks in Aprils’ 2011 NFL Draft. 23 teams in total were awarded at least one compensatory pick this year, with seven teams receiving two, and the Carolina Panthers receiving three. Each of the 32 total picks will be between rounds three and seven.

The Cowboys received a pick late in the seventh and final round. The 252 overall pick, in fact. Hardly news to go crazy over, but hey, a pick’s a pick and you never know what diamond in the rough might be found in what’s always a deep pool of talent each year.
