The countdown to the 2021 NFL Draft officially began after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. And with about a month and a half until draft day, teams today learned how many compensatory draft selections they will have this year.
Green Bay will receive three compensatory picks, one each in the fourth, fifth, and sixth rounds (143, 178, 220). Those picks likely come from the team’s loses of Blake Martinez, Bryan Bulaga, and Kyler Fackrell. The Vikings will receive a fourth and a sixth (144, 223).
This news comes the same day that teams learned what their adjusted salary cap totals will be this year. Green Bay’s is set to be 186.2 million dollars, the lowest in the NFL North, while Minnesota’s will be 187 million.
