Packers awarded 5th round compensatory pick in 2013 NFL Draft

GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy

The NFL announced Monday that the Green Bay Packers have been awarded a 5th round compensatory choice in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.

The Packers lost QB Matt Flynn and C Scott Wells in free agency in 2012. Green Bay signed C Jeff Saturday.

The compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year.

Here is the Packers’ compensatory selection:
Round 5, pick 34 (#167 overall)
