The picks awarded Monday at the NFL Annual Meeting give the Lions picks No. 133 and 136 overall. With 32 picks per round, the Lions are getting the first and fourth compensatory picks awarded in the round.
Picks are awarded on a formula established by the NFL that includes the net gain and loss of players in free-agent signings from the previous year. Only players signed before June 1 are included in the formula.
Five players were lost – defensive linemen Cliff Avril and Sammie Lee Hill, offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus, linebacker Justin Durant and defensive back Drayton Florence.
