Steelers Receive 6th Round Compensatory Pick

The NFL has announced the compensatory draft picks for 2015, and the Steelers have picked up an extra pick in the 7th 6th round. I expected the team to net at least a 6th round pick, but ultimately they’ll receive the 252nd pick as compensation for their net loss of free agents last offseason. *Edit- The NFL notified the Steelers that they will receive a 6th round comp. pick, not a 7th.

The Steelers were one of 14 teams to receive a comp pick. The Chiefs, Broncos, and Seahawks were the biggest winners, each receiving 4 extra picks. Here is the full (updated) list of 2015 compensatory picks.
