The Cleveland Browns are not projected to receive any compensatory draft selections in the 2019 NFL Draft according to OverTheCap.com. Cleveland is left with each of their picks in the first six rounds as well as an additional third round pick (the Danny Shelton trade with New England), two extra fifth round picks (the Carlos Hyde trade with Jacksonville and the Josh Gordon trade with New England) and an additional seventh round pick (the Cody Kessler trade with Jacksonville).
The league has a formula that determines the compensatory NFL Draft selections. It considers the free agents that a team loses and signs each off-season. The compensatory selections are added to the end of each round beginning in the third round.
The Browns received four compensatory selections in 2017 after losing key free agents like center Alex Mack, safety Tashaun Gipson, wide receiver Travis Benjamin and offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Cleveland did not receive any compensatory selections last year either.
