Green Bay Packer general manager Ted Thompson answers a question during a news conference Thursday at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.

The Packers had two of their three sixth-round selections in next month's NFL draft adjusted because of a calculation error the NFL made with the compensatory picks.

The changes saw Carolina's sixth-round selection (213rd overall) become a fifth-rounder (174), Denver's sixth-rounder (208) turned into a seventh (250) and Pittsburgh's seventh (252) morphed into a sixth (212).

Those modifications pushed back Green Bay's actual sixth-round pick from 205 to 206 and its second compensatory pick from 212 to 213.
