NFL compensatory picks 2013: Lions get two additional selections

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL has awarded the Detroit Lions two compensatory picks in this year's draft.

The 2013 NFL Draft order is now official for all seven rounds. The league established the official draft order on Monday by announcing its 2013 compensatory picks. As expected, the Detroit Lions were given two compensatory picks, bringing their 2013 total to eight draft picks.

The Lions' compensatory picks give them a selection at the end of the fourth round and an extra pick at the end of the seventh round. (Compensatory picks can't be traded, by the way, so the Lions are locked into using their two extra picks.) The fourth-rounder came as a result of cornerback Eric Wright signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year, while the seventh-rounder was for losing quarterback Drew Stanton to the New York Jets. (He was later traded to the Indianapolis Colts.)

Here's a full rundown of the eight picks the Lions now have in the 2013 NFL Draft:

  • Round 1 - Pick No. 5
  • Round 2 - Pick No. 4
  • Round 3 - Pick No. 3
  • Round 4 - Pick No. 35 (compensatory)
  • Round 5 - Pick No. 4
  • Round 6 - Pick No. 3
  • Round 7 - Pick No. 5
  • Round 7 - Pick No. 39 (compensatory)

(Note: The Lions traded their original fourth-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings during last year's draft to acquire the pick they used to take linebacker Tahir Whitehead.)
