The New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Washington each will get four of the 32 compensatory draft picks the NFL awarded on Friday.

The Patriots get two picks in the third round, one in the sixth and one in the seventh.

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 the picks. The compensatory picks are positioned within the third-through-seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.
