Falcons receive no compensatory picks for 2023 NFL Draft

The NFL announced on Thursday it has awarded 37 compensatory picks to 16 teams for the 2023 NFL Draft, and the Falcons were not one of them.

Atlanta saw several marquee free agents sign with other teams, but their own free agent additions nullified that possibility. What’s most intriguing about this entire situation is the 49ers receiving a league-high seven compensatory picks.

Of the 37 compensatory picks, five special selections were awarded at the end of the third round to teams that have had a minority employee hired as a head coach or primary football executive by another club — three of which were awarded to San Francisco. 

The Falcons will certainly not receive any for this cycle because the team is set to be big players in free agency. Below is the full list of compensatory picks awarded to teams ahead of this year’s draft:


96) Arizona Cardinals

97) Washington Commanders

98) Cleveland Browns
