Lions 2019 NFL Draft picks set

The NFL has awarded 32 compensatory picks to 15 clubs.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.

The Lions were not among those teams awarded compensatory picks.

With the announcement of the compensatory picks, the 2019 NFL Draft order is now set.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn will have nine picks at his disposal this year, three more than he had last year going into the draft. The Lions have a selection in all seven rounds, and two each in the sixth and seventh rounds.

The draft will be held April 25-27 in Nashville.

Here are where Detroit’s nine draft picks fall:

Round 1, Pick 8

Round 2, Pick 11 (43 overall)

Round 3, Pick 25 (88 overall)

Round 4, Pick 9 (111 overall)

Round 5, Pick 8 (146 overall)

Round 6, Pick 11 (184 overall)

Round 6, Pick 32 (204 overall)

Round 7, Pick 10 (224 overall)

Round 7, Pick 15 (229 overall)
