The Green Bay Packers have been awarded two fourth-round compensatory draft picks in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The Packers will have the 131st and 137th picks in the fourth-round.  Along with the 125th selection, which was their own, the Packers will have three selections in the fourth round.

The two compensatory picks can’t be traded, but that will change in 2017.

The compensatory selections come after the packers lost cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Davon House in free agency.  Williams signed with Cleveland and House in Jacksonville.

Under general manager Ted Thompson, the Packers have received 15 compensatory picks.  The best use of those picks came with defensive end Mike Daniels in 2012 and guard Josh Sitton in 2008.
