Ravens receive NFL-best four comp picks

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Baltimore Ravens received the maximum four compensatory picks, tying the New York Jets for the most in the NFL.

The Ravens were awarded extra picks in the third round (99th overall), fourth round (134th and 138th) and fifth round (175th overall). This was the best-case scenario for the Ravens, who surprisingly received a third-round pick (likely for losing linebacker Paul Kruger) and a fifth-rounder for safety Ed Reed, who was eventually cut by the Houston Texans.

Now, the Ravens have a total of eight draft picks in the 2014 draft: first round (one pick), second round (one), third round (two), fourth round (two), fifth round (one) and sixth round (one). It is believed that the Ravens will receive their seventh-round pick from the Miami Dolphins for offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie in 2015, although no team official will confirm it.

The Ravens have received 41 compensatory picks since they were first awarded in 1994. That's eight more than any other team in the NFL.
