Ravens receive two fifth-round compensatory picks

The Ravens were awarded two fifth-round compensatory picks, Nos. 164 and 165 overall.

Although the Ravens haven't received a compensatory pick in the previous two drafts, this improves their total to 31 since 1995, the most in the NFL. The NFL handed out those picks to the Ravens after they lost defensive end Dwan Edwards to the Buffalo Bills and defensive tackle Justin Bannan to the Denver Broncos as unrestricted free agents in 2010.


The Ravens were among four teams to receive compensatory picks before the sixth round (Carolina, Tennessee and Green Bay were the others).

The Ravens now have a total of nine draft picks for 2011 (remember they can't trade compensatory picks):


First round: 26th overall

Second round: 58th

Third round: 90th

Fourth round: 122nd

Fifth round: 164th, 165th (both compensatory picks)

Sixth round: 175th (from St. Louis for Mark Clayton), 186th

Seventh round: 215th (from Philadelphia for Antwan Barnes)
