Packers receive two compensatory picks in 2023 NFL Draft

Green Bay awarded extra fifth- and seventh-round selections

NFL Draft

GREEN BAY – The Packers received two compensatory picks for the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft, extra fifth- and seventh-round selections.

The league announced a total of 37 compensatory picks Thursday, which are awarded based on a team's net losses in free agency from the previous year.

For Green Bay, factored into the compensatory formula were the losses of offensive lineman Lucas Patrick, defensive back Chandon Sullivan and receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and the signing of defensive lineman Jarran Reed.

In effect, Patrick and Reed canceled one another out, while Valdes-Scantling netted the fifth-round pick (No. 170 overall) and Sullivan resulted in the seventh-rounder (No. 256 overall).

The Packers now have 10 picks heading into the draft at the end of next month, beginning with the No. 15 overall selection in the first round.

Green Bay owns one pick in each of the first four rounds, two in the fifth, and four in the seventh.

The Packers added one extra seventh-rounder from Jacksonville in the Cole Van Lanen trade last summer. They also surrendered their sixth-round pick, while acquiring another seventh-rounder, back in 2021 in the trade for punter Corey Bojorquez.

Here's the full list of Green Bay's picks:

Round 1: No. 15
Round 2: No. 45
Round 3: No. 78
Round 4: No. 116
Round 5: Nos. 149, 170
Round 7: Nos. 232, 235, 242, 256
