The Saints were one of 14 teams to receive an additional pick. Overall, 32 selections were awarded.

Picks are awarded compensatory picks when clubs suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents during the prior free agency signing period.

These extra draft choices were awarded to the Saints for losses in free agency last offseason of defensive tackle David Onyemata, defensive end Marcus Davenport, and linebacker Kaden Elliss.
