As expected, the Packers received a mid-round compensatory draft choice in this upcoming April's draft from the NFL for free agent losses incurred last season.
According to Adam Caplan of Fox Sports via his Twitter account, the Packers were awarded a fourth-round draft choice from the NFL.
The compensatory draft choice was a result of losing defensive lineman Aaron Kampman in free agency last season when he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Packers did not sign any free agents that qualified as part of the league's formula for awarding compensatory draft choices.
The pick will come at the completion of the fourth round.
