NFL Teams Say Failing a Drug Test Is No Longer a Big Deal for Draft Prospects

The NFL has announced 32 compensatory selections for the 2018 NFL Draft, with the Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders receiving a league-high four each.

Compensatory picks are awarded based on the players that a team lost and gained in the previous offseason. The Buccaneers also have their own picks in the first six rounds plus Pittsburgh's sixth-round selection - courtesy of last summer's J.J. Wilcox trade - and the announcement of the compensatory selections means they also know exactly where those picks fall.

The total of four third-round picks awarded marks a major departure from 2017, in which 11 such selections were given.

It's worth noting comp picks can be traded, so they can trade No. 136.

Apple believed to be trying to deal with cobalt miners
Any phone company that needs lithium-ion batteries is ultimately sourcing much of its cobalt from the DRC. Over the past eighteen months, the price of cobalt has tripled to more than $80,000 a metric ton.

The new pick comes just one spot from the end of the entire draft, at number 255 overall. Receiving four picks was tied for the most in the National Football League along with 14 other teams. However, due to trades the Steelers do not have a fourth-round pick or a sixth-round pick.

Most expected the Packers to gain four extra picks after losing several top players in free agency last offseason.

The Giants also qualified for a second compensatory pick, but because of the limit of 32, those who fell on the outside weren't awarded the additional picks.

Compensatory picks were previously not allowed to be traded, until a rule change allowed dealing such picks starting in 2017.
