The Los Angeles Rams have not been awarded any compensatory picks for the 2016 NFL Draft having lost no more significant talent than they gained through free agency in 2015 as decided by the NFL Management Council. Per the NFL:

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through sixth rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory picks may not be traded this year. A rule change approved by clubs in 2015 will permit compensatory draft picks to be traded beginning in 2017.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.

While free agency a year ago saw contributors like OT Joe Barksdale, QB Shaun Hill and DT Kendall Langford, the Rams brought in DT Nick Fairley, LB Akeem Ayers, OL Garrett Reynolds and WR Wes Welker.

The Rams will likely get compensation for Janoris Jenkins' and Rodney McLeod's departure in this year's free agency window going into the 2017 NFL Draft.
