The Atlanta Falcons were awarded three compensatory draft picks for the 2014 NFL Draft: a fourth-rounder and two seventh-rounders.

The Falcons were given the extra draft picks based on last season’s free agent loses: cornerbacks Brent Grimes (Miami Dolphins) and Chris Owens (Cleveland Browns), tackle Will Svitek (New England Patriots), and defensive tackle Vance Walker (Oakland Raiders).

As it stands now, the Falcons have 10 picks in the upcoming draft.
