The Atlanta Falcons will have their full slate of draft picks and should be able to have a good bit of depth replenished on a team that barely missed the Super Bowl in 2012. Despite signing multiple free agents in the offseason, none of them affected the compensatory formula as they were all either minimum signings or players released from their former teams.
According to Blogging the Beast, the Falcons should receive four compensatory selections. They should get a fourth-round selection for the loss of linebacker Curtis Lofton. They should also receive three seventh-round selections for the losses of receiver/return specialist Eric Weems, cornerback Kelvin Hayden and safety James Sanders.
Follow along as we go over the scenario for the Falcons with their 11 projected picks this year and their various needs all around the team.
