The New York Jets just learned that they have been awarded four compensatory selections in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Jets' picks will come in the 6th and 7th rounds of the NFL Draft. The Sixth Round selections will be the 33rd (202nd Overall) and 34th (203rd Overall) picks. The 7th Round selections will be the 35th (242nd Overall) and 37th (244th Overall) picks.
Compensatory picks are determined by a formula that looks at how many compensatory free agents a team has gained and lost. The formula also includes salary, playing time and honors taken home by players during the season.
The Jets lost Drew Coleman, Braylon Edwards, Shaun Ellis, Brad Smith, Steve Weatherford and gained no compensatory free agents over the period determined by the formula.
