The St. Louis Rams were awarded a sixth round pick and two seventh round compensatory selections in the 2014 Draft, the NFL announced Monday.
The Rams now hold a total of 12 selections in May’s draft: two in the first round, one each in round two through five, two in the sixth and four in the seventh.
The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four from the previous year’s free agency period. Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.
In 2013, the Rams added veteran free agents Jake Long and Jared Cook, while four St. Louis veterans signed with other teams: Danny Amendola, Craig Dahl, Bradley Fletcher, Brandon Gibson and Rob Turner.
