Browns Don't Receive Any Compensatory Picks For 2014 Draft

A couple of days ago, I projected that the Cleveland Browns would not receive any compensatory picks in the 2014 NFL Draft, based on how free agency went for them last year. At the annual league meetings on Monday, it was confirmed that the Browns would not be receiving any additional picks in May's draft.

Four teams picked up third-round picks: Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Baltimore, and San Francisco. In terms of the division, the Ravens were big-time winners, adding a third-round pick, two fourth-round picks, and a fifth-round pick. That was because they lost Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger, Ed Reed, and Cary Williams in 2013, without gaining any significant free agents.

The Steelers added a third-round pick, a fifth-round pick, and a sixth-round pick. That was because they lost Keenan Lewis, Rashard Mendenhall, Ryan Mundy, and Mike Wallace in 2013, while only gaining Bruce Gradkowski. The Bengals added a sixth-round pick and a seventh-round pick.

Despite the AFC North representing 4 out of 32 teams in the NFL (12.5%), the division received 9 of the 32 compensatory picks (28.13%) handed out by the league for the 2014 NFL Draft.
