Bills awarded compensatory picks

One year after losing Clements, Bills are compensated

The Buffalo Bills were given fourth- and seventh-round picks Monday in the annual NFL compensatory handouts, reports's Adam Caplan. The fourth rounder is a result of losing cornerback Nate Clements to San Francisco last year.

Clements became the richest defensive player in NFL history with the eight-year, $80 million deal. With the 49ers, Clements had 92 tackles and four interceptions. Buffalo did ink Derrick Dockery and Langston Walker to sizeable contracts, but the magnitude of Clements' deal equated to a fourth-round pick.

Four teams were awarded third-round picks - Washington, Cincinnati, Atlanta and Baltimore.

Buffalo now has 10 selections in the 2008 NFL Draft.
