The Chiefs were one of seven teams to be awarded one additional selection, but eight teams earned multiple picks.

The NFL announced the compensatory picks given out for the upcoming draft, and the New England Patriots were awarded four picks. Players who are released do not qualify.

The Redskins can thank Kirk Cousins for their extra third-round pick, a selection that will undoubtedly serve to benefit the team in April, provided how deep the 2019 NFL Draft class is at positions of need.

Prime Minister Imran Khan and his Cabinet will receive the Saudi Crown prince and his high-powered delegation at Nur Khan Airbase. Bin Salman has reportedly tabled a $4.9 billion bid for the Old Trafford club following an initial approach back in October.

The Carolina Panthers will receive a third-round compensatory pick, meaning they will have two third-round picks in this year's draft. With the trade for Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix losing them a fourth-round pick, and the supplemental draft addition of Adonis Alexander losing them a sixth-rounder, the Redskins now have nine total picks in this year's NFL Draft. Baltimore (50) has the most.

Arizona already had the first pick in each of the first six rounds of the draft. In determining pick compensation, the league's private formula considers salary, playing time and postseason honors. The Seahawks sent their 2019 second-rounder to Houston in 2017 as part of the trade to acquire Duane Brown, and they traded their sixth and seventh-rounders past year to acquire quarterback Brett Hundley from Green Bay and safety Shalom Luani from Oakland.
