The Green Bay Packers received one compensatory pick in the 2013 NFL draft Monday, a fifth-round selection scheduled to come at No. 167 overall.
The pick comes as a result of Green Bay losing Matt Flynn to Seattle (three years, $19.5 million) and Scott Wells to St. Louis (four years, $24 million) and signing Jeff Saturday from Indianapolis (two years, $7.75 million) during last season's free agency period.
A season ago, the Packers received four such selections.
Compensatory picks cannot be traded.
Since the NFL started assigning compensatory picks in 1994, the Packers' 31 are second only to the Baltimore Ravens, who have received 37.
Below are the Packers tentative picks in the 2013 NFL draft, with compensatory picks for all 32 teams factored in:
- First round, No. 26

- Fourth round, No. 122

- Fifth round, No. 167 (compensatory)
