2012 NFL Draft: Rams Get One Compensatory Pick

The St. Louis Rams received one compensatory pick from the NFL.

The NFL doled out compensatory picks for the 2012 NFL Draft on Monday. These picks are handed out to teams who lose "more or better" free agents than they signed in the prior year. The St. Louis Rams received one pick, the second-to-last in the seventh round.

The Rams' compensatory pick had nothing to do with 2011 free agents, though the Rams signed some real winners last year. St. Louis and Indianapolis each received a pick at the end of the seventh round to make for an even 32 compensatory picks. Those two teams got theirs based on the draft order. Think of it like alms for the league's poor teams.

St. Louis now has two seventh-round picks, bringing their total draft picks this year to eight. They have one first-round pick, two second-round picks, a third-round pick, a fourth-round pick, a sixth-round pick and the two seventh rounders. They lost their fifth-round pick in the Brandon Lloyd trade.

The Rams have received a total of 27 comp picks since the league started handing them out in 1994.
