Broncos' four compensatory picks in 2015 NFL Draft: Rd 4-133, Rd 6-208, Rd 7-250, Rd 7-251.— Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) March 24, 2015
The Broncos, their division rival Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks tied for the most compensatory picks awarded with four each.
This now gives the Denver Broncos at least one pick in each of the seven rounds of next month's NFL Draft. The Compensatory picks will take place at the end of each round. Also, compensatory picks cannot be traded.
Seven of the ten draft picks the Broncos have this year are after the third round. So John Elway and the Broncos decision makers will need to strike some gold in the later rounds.
The Broncos have had just one compensatory pick in the last eight drafts -- in 2011 when they selected Jeremy Beal in the seventh round. Since the 2004 draft they have had just five compensatory picks overall -- 2004 (Brandon Miree), 2005 (Domonique Foxworth, Maurice Clarett), 2006 (Domenik Hixon) and Beal.
