According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New England Patriots have been awarded 4 compensatory draft picks- one in the 6th round and three in the 7th round. Late last week I ran an article explaining the mystery surrounding the compensatory picks, along with AdamJT13's predictions for us. Needless to say, he was spot on.
1st Compensatory Pick of the 7th Round: New England (Jabar Gaffney, $2.5 million, 16/7) — possibly a sixth-round pick
11th: New England (Lonie Paxton, $1.03 million, 16/0)
12th: New England (Heath Evans, $1.05 million, 6/5)
13th: New England (LaMont Jordan, $1.01 million, 9/0)
This means great things for us. We received the greatest quantity of compensatory picks this draft, which hopefully translates into some great late-round pick ups.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, these are the Patriots compensatory picks.
New England -- 205
