The Chargers received the top two compensatory draft picks in the fourth round, Nos. 133 and 134 overall. The team had hoped to net third- and fourth-round selections -- a third for RB Michael Turner and a fourth for CB Drayton Florence -- but instead will settle for pocketing two of the top-six compensatory selections.
Four teams received third-round compensation: the New England Patriots (for CB Asante Samuel), the Cincinnati Bengals (for DE Justin Smith), the Chicago Bears (for WR Bernard Berrian) and the New York Giants (for LB Kawika Mitchell).
The Chargers, with their two extra fourth-round selections, will have five picks in the first four rounds of the draft. San Diego has done well in the fourth round recently, picking Matt Wilhelm (2003), Shaun Phillips (2004) and Darren Sproles (2005).
Compensatory picks cannot be dealt on draft day, meaning GM A.J. Smith cannot use his two newest picks to move around the draft board.
