Updated in accordance with the recently released official draft order. Due to recent trades I did not incorporate yet especially the 7th round was a mess. I'll go ahead and try to figure out the trades involved over the next days.

Some weird changes though.

  • New England received an additional 5th round compensatory pick. Twitter has it that there was a miscalculation of a player's salary which let to that pick. Accordingly the last comp pick (to Chicago) should have been cancelled but in agreement with the NFLPA the League awarded a 33rd regular comp pick this year.
  • San Francisco received only one additional comp pick for leaving minority Head Coach/General Manager which is in line with my understanding of the CBA amendment. Others reported SF would receive two additional picks already this year.
  • Two picks earlier reported as forfeited for Covid-19 protocol violations have been awarded to Las Vegas (6th round) and New Orleans (7th round).
  • Minnesota forfeited a 7th round pick for an undisclosed practice squad contract violation.

The Stafford/Goff trade seems not to be processed in the NFL release. May be some other recent trades are not yet in there as well, I'll have a closer look.

Stay tuned.
