Vikings Get Single Compensatory Pick

The Vikings found out today just how many compensatory picks they will get -- one -- in April's draft and where it falls.

The NFL is announcing its compensatory picks today, and while the Vikings weren't expecting a windfall of picks after losing only Dwayne Rudd and Tony Williams to free agency last year (other players were cut, but teams don't receive compensation for those moves), they did get a nice positioning with the one pick they received.

Minnesota received the first compensatory pick of the fourth round, the 34th pick of the fourth round and the 132nd pick overall. It was the third compensatory pick overall (Buffalo and Arizona each get one at the end of the third round).

The league awarded a total of 32 compensatory picks overall, with half of them coming at the end of the seventh and final round.
