The NFL handed out a total of 32 compensatory picks to 23 NFL teams on Friday afternoon, the league announced.

As you may or may not know, teams receive these compensatory picks based on the differential between outgoing and incoming free agents in the previous year. A team can receive up to a maximum of four based on the number of those free agents, one for each pick, and in 2011 the compensatory picks will be placed between the third and seventh rounds.

The quality of the pick is dependent a formula that's developed by the NFL Management Council "based on salary, playing time and postseason honors." (For instance, the Carolina Panthers lost Julius Peppers, who was quite good. They did not bring in anyone of his value. Hence why they got the 97th overall pick in the draft as compensation.)

Somebody please help me with my math!! 
          7 X 32 = 224 + 32 = 256
NOT 253.
It seems that that first compensatory pick at the end of the 7th round is 236, not 233.

Ooh... good call Adam_Anarchy.  243 onward is just the top of the draft order to fill out the 32 picks.  I had totally missed that.

This is pretty cool for the teams that lost good players. I looked up some past picks and some good players have come out of this.

Awesome, the Chargers get the 201st and 233rd picks, and which one of them, maybe they can draft Cam Newton!
Just kidding, they wouldn't reach.
Hopefully they look at special teams gunners!

the last compensatory pick would appear to be #242 given to the Saints, but since ALL 32 picks must be allocated, any leftover are given out as a hypothetical 8th round, so the Texans lone compensatory pick is really part of that "8th round" and had nothing to do with Robinson/Leinart at all.
