The Falcons, who are slotted into the 14th position of the NFL draft, are projected to picked up a fourth- and fifth-round compensatory picks to go along with the seven picks they already have.

The Falcons will get a fourth-round pick for losing Dontari Poe in free agency and a fifth-round pick for losing wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, according to Nick Korte of OverTheCap.com.  

The NFL has not released the list of picks, but Korte’s projections have been accurate in the past with the complicated awarding formula.

“There will be some really good football players in the middle of the round each round,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said on Thursday. “That’s our thought.”

The draft will be held April 25, in Nashville.
