A week into free agency, the Green Bay Packers have lost a number of starters. It could lead to the team receiving multiple compensatory picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Packers were awarded two compensatory draft choices this year based on the 2022 free agency period.

So far this offseason, it looks like the team could receive even more compensatory picks next year.

How many 2024 compensatory picks could Packers receive?

To get a better idea of how many compensatory picks the Packers could receive next year, let’s take a look at Over The Cap’s cancellation chart.

It’s a great resource to learn more about compensatory picks. Over The Cap lists every player each team has lost and gained in free agency and then uses many factors, including the contract, to determine how many compensatory picks could be awarded.

This list is far from finalized as free agency isn’t over yet. However, as things stand, Green Bay could receive as many as three compensatory draft picks.

Over The Cap has Green Bay receiving three compensatory picks as things stand. That includes a fifth-round pick for Allen Lazard, as well as sixth-rounders for Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry.

Robert Tonyan would be eligible for a seventh-round choice, but Over The Cap doesn’t have the Packers receiving that pick, as the NFL would have already awarded the maximum of 32 across the league. In this scenario, Green Bay would just miss out.

Over The Cap also hasn’t yet factored in the Packers’ new signing, safety Tarvarius Moore. Once the contract details are released, they can update the compensatory pick chart. It’s possible the Moore signing could cancel out one of the Packers’ projected 2024 compensatory picks.

We’re still early in free agency, but the signs are pointing to Green Bay receiving multiple compensatory picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.
