The team with the worst record from the prior season gets the first pick in every round, the Champion gets the last pick in every round. There are 7 rounds, every team starts out with one pick in each round but is allowed to trade those picks. The NFL awards compensatory picks to teams who lost free agent players, teams are not allowed to trade compensatory picks.
