As usual, a Baltimore Ravens did good for themselves in a compensatory-picks department, earning a fourth-round preference and dual picks in a fifth. This is zero new for a Ravens, of course, as Chris Wesseling of NFL.com noted:

New England notched a tip pick, roughly confidently due to cornerback Aqib Talib’s departure, while Kansas City’s detriment of several players was expected a outrageous cause in a group receiving 4 picks overall, including a third-rounder.
But nobody “won” a compensatory-pick designations like a Cincinnati Bengals, as Andrew Brandt of ESPN tweeted:
Best 2015 saving collect is Bengals removing a 3rd for losing Michael Johnson, now behind on their register while creation $7M from Bucs.

The fact that Cincinnati also perceived a fourth-round saving collect is simply topping on a cake.
Denver—which lost Robert Ayers, Eric Decker, Jeremy Mincey, Knowshon Moreno, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Wesley Woodyard, among others—and Seattle (Brandon Browner, Golden Tate, Walter Thurmond) assimilated Kansas City as a teams claiming 4 saving picks.
The Houston Texans perceived 3 picks alongside Baltimore, while the Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, Patriots and Bengals any perceived dual selections. Arizona, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and St. Louis all perceived one.
It isn’t tough to theory a few teams that will expected do good for themselves in this routine subsequent year. After losing Ndamukong Suh, for instance, a Detroit Lions are substantially a close to find themselves with a third-round pick, while a detriment of Darrelle Revis will substantially acquire a Patriots a good saving selection.
