2014 NFL Mock Draft: Updated 7-Round Predictions with Compensatory Picks
Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor
Buffalo's Khalil Mack is projected to be among the top selections in this year's NFL draft.

The full order for the 2014 NFL draft is now set. The National Football League announced Monday that 32 compensatory selections have been awarded to 13 NFL teams, bringing the draft's number of selections up to its total of 256 picks.

Per the NFL's release, "a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks," with each of those teams being eligible for a maximum of four additional selections. 

The first compensatory picks fall in the third round, with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers landing the Nos. 97-100 overall selections.

The Ravens and New York Jets were the only two teams to receive four compensatory picks. The Ravens also received two picks in Round 4 (Nos. 134 and 138 overall) and one in the fifth round (No. 175 overall), while the Jets received one fourth-round choice (No. 137 overall) and three sixth-round picks.

As those 13 teams receive more ammunition for this year's draft, their projected selections in both early and late rounds could also change. While the compensatory picks cannot be traded, it gives the teams who hold them more flexibility to take chances early in the draft.
