The NFL announced that the Chargers were one of 15 teams to earn a compensatory draft pick for the 2018 NFL Draft. These are selections given as, well, compensation for free agent losses.

According to the league's release, compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.

The NFL officially handed out compensatory picks on Friday. Dallas' and Green Bay's four selections each are equal to the 69th overall pick, which is in the third round.

The Cardinals' original fourth-round pick was traded past year in a deal with the Chicago Bears.

The Browns signed two such free agents last offseason, guard Kevin Zeitler from the Bengals and center JC Tretter from the Packers.

Haley disagreed, saying the Trump administration was offering "an outstretched hand" to the Palestinian people and their leaders. She said the US will not change its decision on December 6 to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, a move that has frozen U.S.

The Minnesota Vikings were the only other team to receive multiple picks, with both coming in Round 6.

Compensatory picks were previously not allowed to be traded, until a rule change allowed dealing such picks starting in 2017. They originally had six selections prior to getting a compensatory pick after giving up a seventh-rounder to acquire QB Cardale Jones from the Bills last July.

The Browns used three compensatory picks in 2016 to select tight end Seth DeValve at No. 138, wide receiver Rashard Higgins at No. 172 and defensive back Trey Caldwell at No. 173.

All four extra picks will come in the sixth round, with the Raiders receiving the 36th (210th overall), 38th (212th overall), 42nd (216th overall) and 43rd (217th overall) selections in the round. The Browns, of course, were not in the league for three of those seasons.
