Even if a team loses and gains the same amount of players but lost higher valued talent, they can get a pick.

The NFL announced that the Chargers were one of 15 teams to earn a compensatory draft pick for the 2018 NFL Draft.

In addition to the second pick in the fourth round, the compensatory pick will also allow the Giants to have the 35th selection in the fourth round, which is the No. 135 pick overall. The Packers lost T.J. Lang, Jared Cook and Micah Hyde, among others, last offseason, while the Cowboys watched Ronald Leary, Barry Church, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne depart.

The NFL officially announced compensatory picks on Friday, and the Giants get the extra fourth-rounder because defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins signed with the Indianapolis Colts during free agency a year ago. Denver's third-round compensatory pick was the only one they received.

The Browns used three compensatory picks in 2016 to select tight end Seth DeValve at No. 138, wide receiver Rashard Higgins at No. 172 and defensive back Trey Caldwell at No. 173.

Combine one original pick in all seven rounds, four compensatory picks and one conditional pick, and new Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst will go into his first draft with 12 total picks - giving him an immediate chance to replenish his roster, either by getting aggressive and moving around the board or staying put and producing a large draft class.
