Rams, Patriots both receive two third-round compensatory picks –

The NFL awarded compensatory draft picks Friday, and the Patriots and Rams both received two third-round picks.

The Patriots’ third-round choices are No. 97 overall and 101 overall. The Rams’ third-round choices are No. 98 and 99 overall.

In all, 15 teams received additional selections after losing more or better compensatory free agents (CFA) than it acquired last year based on a formula.

The Patriots lost Danny Amendola, Johnson Bademosi, Malcolm Butler, Cameron Fleming, Dion Lewis and Nate Solder as CFAs. They signed CFAs Adrian Clayborn and Jeremy Hill.

Washington (96th overall), Carolina (100th) and Baltimore (102nd) each received one third-round pick.
