 PHOENIX (AP) - The Super Bowl champion Ravens and the Falcons each received four compensatory picks in April's draft for free agents they lost in 2012.
San Francisco, which fell 34-31 to Baltimore for the NFL title, will get three picks, as will Tennessee.
Compensatory selections have been awarded since 1994 to teams losing more or better free agents than they acquire in the previous year. Baltimore lost Ben Grubbs, Jarret Johnson, Brandon McKinney, Haruki Nakamura, Cory Redding and Tom Zbikowski, and signed Sean Considine and Corey Graham.
Atlanta lost Kelvin Hayden, Curtis Lofton, James Sanders and Eric Weems while it didn't sign anyone in 2012.
The highest compensatory pick this year is Houston's at No. 95 overall. Such picks can't be traded and are awarded in the third through seventh rounds.
