All three of the draft selections are in the seventh round, giving the Cowboys a total of six in the final round. The Cowboys lost four players in free agency last year that qualified: Mike Jenkins, John Phillips, Victor Butler, and Kenyon Coleman. They gained one with Justin Durant.
A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2014 NFL Draft have been awarded to 13 teams, the NFL announced today. Essentially, the compensatory-pick process pays back teams that took heavy losses in free agency the previous year. By rule, compensatory picks cannot be traded.
