Ravens, Jets get 4 compensatory draft picks

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets each will receive four compensatory picks in this year’s draft for free agents they lost in 2013.

Baltimore gets spots in the third, fourth and fifth rounds, with two choices in Round 4. Those slots are 99th, 134th, 138th and 175th.

Among the free agents the Ravens lost after winning the 2012 NFL title were Ed Reed, Danell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger and Cary Williams, all key defensive players.

The Jets will get slots 139, 209, 210 and 213: a fourth-rounder and three sixth-rounders. They lost free agents Dustin Keller, Matt Slauson, Yeremiah Bell, Mike DeVito, Shonn Greene and LaRon Landry.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The compensatory choices can’t be traded.

Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and St. Louis each received three compensatory picks. Cincinnati, Green Bay and Detroit got two apiece, while New England, San Francisco and the New York Giants were give one each.

In all, 32 choices were awarded for the draft, which begins May 8.

Pittsburgh, which lost Mike Wallace, Keenan Lewis, Ryan Mundy and Rashard Mendenhall in free agency last year, gets the highest pick, 97th overall, 33rd in the third round. Green Bay goes directly after the Steelers, having lost Greg Jennings and Erik Walden. Then, Baltimore and San Francisco finish off the third-round; the 49ers lost Dashon Goldson, Ricky Jean Francois, Isaac Sopoaga, Delanie Walker and Ted Ginn Jr.
