2013 Draft

Steelers Receive Sixth Round Compensatory Pick In The 2013 NFL Draft

The 2013 NFL compensatory draft picks were announced on Monday at the annual NFL owners\’ meeting and the Pittsburgh Steelers received a sixth-round compensatory pick for their loss of cornerback William Gay to the Arizona Cardinals during the free agency signing period last off-season.

The picks is the 38th in the sixth round and the 206th overall.

Even though the Steelers did sign Kansas City Chiefs unrestricted free agent tight end Leonard Pope last off-season, it was not enough to offset Gay, who signed a two-year, $3.2 million contract with the Cardinals. Gay also played over 1,000 snaps on defense for the Cardinals in 2012, while Pope played less than 100 on offense for the Steelers.

Under the rules for compensatory draft picks, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The formula used to determine these picks is based on salary, playing time and postseason honors and it was developed several years ago by the NFL Management Council.

Compensatory draft picks cannot be traded.

The following 2013 compensatory draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council:
