The Colts are projected to get fifth and sixth round compensatory picks in this year's NFL Draft for Denico Autry and Jacoby Brissett, according to overthecap.com.

Autry, the former Colts pass rusher who signed with the Titans as a free agent, will earn the Colts a fifth-round pick. Brissett, who signed with Miami as a free agent, will net the Colts a sixth-rounder. The Colts dealt their first-round pick to the Eagles for quarterback Carson Wentz.

Each year, 32 compensatory picks are awarded to teams who lost players to free agency. These picks (and their value) are determined by a variety of factors, including how much a player signs for in free agency and how he performs with his new team. Basically, teams are awarded compensatory picks when that team “loses more or better compensatory free agents than it acquired in the previous year," per the NFL

For context, Autry is the 17th most valuable player to be worth a pick, while Brissett is 25th. Picks can be awarded anywhere from the third to seventh round.
