The Green Bay Packers were awarded two compensatory draft picks for losing a couple of free agents last year.  The NFL doled out the extra choices on the first day of the Owner's meetings in Orlando, Florida.  Green Bay will receive a third round choice, the 98th overall pick, as compensation for losing wide receiver Greg Jennings in free agency to the Minnesota Vikings.  The Packers were also given a fifth round choice after Erik Walden signed with Indianapolis.   The additions will give General Manager Ted Thompson 9 picks over the 7 rounds of the 2014 draft which has been pushed back to May 8-10 this spring.   Thompson by the way, is not attending the meetings.  Team President Mark Murphy said the GM is deal with a "personal" issue.  "He's fine, he's working, he's just not able to travel", Murphy said.
