PHOENIX -- The NFL awarded compensatory draft choices to teams on Monday, and as expected, the Patriots did not receive any.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.

Because the Patriots did not have net loss of compensatory free agents, they did not qualify under the league's formula.

Patriots 2013 draft choices
1st round (own, 29th in round)
2nd round (own, 29th in round)
3rd round (own, 29th in round)
7th round (from Tampa, 20th in round)
7th round (own, 29th in round)

(4th round pick to Tampa Bay in Aqib Talib trade; 5th round pick to Washington in Albert Haynesworth trade; 6th round pick to Cincinnati in Chad Ochocinco trade.)
