It also helps that GM Ted Thompson has found some of his best players with compensatory picks.
#Packers take Iowa DT Mike Daniels with 4th-round compensatory pick. Still on the clock.While he doesn't always select players as good as Daniels, or former compensatory pick LG Josh Sitton (the book is still open on his 2014 compensatory selections of TE Richard Rodgers and WR Jared Abbrederis) it sure doesn't hurt to give him more picks to work with. I'm not enough of a draft nut to know which sleeper picks might be available in the late 6th and 7th rounds, but odds are that at least one of them will turn into a useful player.
