The seven-round draft order hasn't been confirmed by the National Football League, but one thing is now certain: The Green Bay Packers will have 12 picks in the 2018 National Football League draft.

Teams are eligible for compensatory draft choices if a team loses more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires the previous year.

The picks gained came in the fourth round (No. 133), fifth round (No. 172, No. 174) and sixth round (No. 207). While the Cardinals don't have their own pick in that round, they will still be selecting in the fourth with one of its compensatory picks. Four compensatory selections is the maximum that any team can receive. The Packers lost T.J. Lang, Jared Cook and Micah Hyde, among others, last offseason, while the Cowboys watched Ronald Leary, Barry Church, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne depart.

The Packers received four extra draft picks for the upcoming draft because of a long list of players that they let out the door to free agency. This marks the first time since 2011 that Tampa Bay has been awarded a compensatory pick.

The Packers pick 14th overall in this coming year's draft, the highest draft position the team has had since 2009, when Ted Thompson selected B.J.

Their draft stock includes the No. 5 overall pick as well as No. 40, No. 71 and No. 99.
