The Packers received four compensatory picks for the 2012 NFL draft. The league will announce all the compensatory picks on Monday.

The packers received two fourth-rounders and two seventh-rounders for their net free-agent loss from the previous season. Compensatory picks cannot be traded.

Green Bay has a total of 12 picks in April’s draft. According to the report, the Packers were compensated for the losses of OG Daryn Colledge, DL Cullen Jenkins, RB Brandon Jackson and OG Jason Spitz, with Colledge and Jenkins likely representing the fourth-round picks. Colledge started all 16 games for Arizona last season and Jenkins had 5½ sacks starting all 15 games for Philadelphia.

Four compensatory picks is the most a team can be rewarded.
