NFL Compensatory Picks: Eagles receive no extra selections for 2015 NFL Draft

No picks for you.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

NFL compensatory picks for the 2015 NFL Draft were announced on Monday evening and the Philadelphia Eagles did not receive a single one. This wasn't unexpected. The Eagles weren't projected to earn any picks.

Compensatory picks are extra picks at the ends of rounds three through seven that are awarded to teams that suffered net losses in terms of free agents lost/signed. The amount of money and playing time the departing player gets also factors in.

2014 Free Agents Not Retained

QB Michael Vick (Jets)
WR Jason Avant (Panthers, cut and picked up by Chiefs)
S Kurt Coleman (Vikings, cut and picked up by Chiefs)
S Colt Anderson (Colts)
DE Clifton Geathers (Redskins, cut)
DE Phillip Hunt (Colts, didn't make team)

2014 Free Agents Signed

S Malcolm Jenkins
S Chris Maragos
LB Bryan Braman
CB Nolan Carroll II
QB Mark Sanchez
OT Andrew Gardner


The Eagles didn't receive any compensatory picks last year for the 2014 NFL Draft either. Based on their frequent activity in the 2015 offseason, it looks like the Eagles might go without a compensatory pick in next year's 2016 NFL Draft as well.

Here is a complete list of the Eagles 2015 NFL draft picks as it currently stands.

4th (San Francisco 49ers)
5th (St. Louis Rams)
