The NFL has released the list of compensatory picks awarded to teams for the 2019 NFL draft.

Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted out a full list of the compensatory picks on Friday:

Per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, compensatory picks are awarded to teams that lose more and/or better free agents than they gain during the respective signing period. The league then uses a formula to award compensatory picks between the third and seventh rounds.

Interestingly enough, this year's Super Bowl participants were among the biggest winners in terms of compensatory picks. The New England Patriots (four overall compensatory picks) and the Los Angeles Rams (three) each received two additional selections at the end of the third round.

The CBA limits the number of compensatory picks to a maximum of four per team. This year, New England, Washington and the Arizona Cardinals all maxed out.

Back in December 2015, the league approved the trading of compensatory picks beginning in 2017. As a result, the teams awarded selections on Friday now have additional draft capital to work with.

Of note, Arizona will now have the opportunity to pick this year's Mr. Irrelevant after being awarded the 254th and final selection of the 2019 draft.
