The Patriots lost more free agents than they signed this offseason, and while that may not be a good thing now, it will likely help them out in the 2019 draft.

Monday was the deadline for any free agent signings counting towards the compensatory pick formula and according to overthecap.com, the Patriots are expected to be awarded two third-round picks, a sixth-round pick and a seventh-round pick.

The Patriots and Rams are the only two teams projected to get two third-round picks in return.

Miguel Benzan (@PatsCap) does a good job of laying it all out. The Patriots will get a third-round pick for Nate Solder, a third-round pick for Malcolm Butler, a sixth-round pick for Dion Lewis, and a seventh-round pick for Cameron Fleming. The Jeremy Hill signing offsets losing Johnson Bademosi and Adrian Clayborn offsets losing Danny Amendola.

New England usually does very well when it comes to getting compensatory picks, but this might be its biggest haul in awhile.
