NFL Draft Compensatory Picks: Lions Receive None

Just as expected, the Detroit Lions were not given any compensatory picks for the 2011 NFL Draft. Martin Mayhew said earlier in the week he didn't expect the Lions to get any, as they did not lose more free agents than they gained last offseason.

The Lions missed out on getting one at the end of the seventh round by two picks, as the Houston Texans will select this year's Mr. Irrelevant. Houston has the 11th overall pick, and the first-round order is used for handing out extra compensatory picks at the end of the draft, which is why the Lions had the last pick a year ago.

After the jump is a list of the compensatory picks that were handed out.
