The NFL handed out compensatory draft picks on Monday afternoon and the Cleveland Browns were awarded four picks -- tied with the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets for most in the league. Mary Kay Cabot first reported the picks:
#Browns, Packers and NYJ tied for most compensatory picks with 4 each. 32 picks going to 15 teams.— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) March 26, 2012
The picks will fall in the sixth and seventh round, at numbers 204 and 205, and 245 and 247.
As she also noted, this brings the total number of Browns picks in the 2012 NFL Draft to 13. That is tied with the expansion year of 1999 for the highest number of picks they have had in one draft. The 13 picks are tied for the most any team has had since the draft went to seven rounds in 1994.
