No compensatory picks for Saints

The Saints did not receive a compensatory draft pick in the 2008 draft.

Four teams: Washington, Cincinnati, Atlanta, and Baltimore each received an extra pick at the end of the third round.

The league awarded 32 total compensatory choices to teams who lost more or better free agents than it acquired the previous offseason, based on a complex formula involving salary, playing time and production.

The Saints lost Montrae Holland, Joe Horn and Omar Stoutmire in free agency 2007.
