The Dallas Cowboys have been awarded four compensatory picks for the upcoming NFL Draft, the league announced Wednesday.

The Cowboys get an extra pick in Rounds 3-6 after losing seven to free agency — including cornerback Byron Jones and defensive end Robert Quinn — and gaining three.

The Los Angeles Rams were awarded three picks for losing three and gaining one. The Rams get two third-rounders and a fourth.

The New Orleans Saints were also awarded two third-rounders and a sixth-round pick. The Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers were also awarded three picks.

A total of 37 compensatory picks were awarded to 17 different teams.

The New England Patriots received the highest compensatory pick, a third-round selection that is No. 96 overall. The Los Angeles Chargers, Tennessee Titans, 49ers and Baltimore Ravens also received third-round picks.

In addition to the Cowboys, Rams, Patriots and Saints, fourth-rounders also went to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs.

The formula for compensation picks is based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.
