The Ravens are expected to receive four Compensatory Draft Picks for the 2013 draft given their free agent losses. This would push the team’s total number of draft picks to 11 come April, 2013
Under NFL rules four is the maximum number of Compensatory Draft Picks permitted.
This offseason six of the Ravens’ unrestricted free agents signed by other clubs qualified.  Those six players matched up against two unrestricted free agent signings by the Ravens (CB Corey Graham ~ Bears and Sean Considine ~ Arizona) net out to four picks.
It is possible that Considine may not qualify in the evaluation but that designation is a moot point anyway, since the maximum number of comp picks awarded to any individual team is four.
The Ravens lost G Ben Grubbs (Saints), LB Jarret Johnson (Chargers), S Tom Zbikowski (Colts), S Haruki Nakamura (Panthers), DE Cory Redding (Colts) and DT Brandon McKinney (Colts).
Players cut by the Ravens (Chris Carr) or signed after being cut by a player’s old team (G Bobbie Williams ~ Bengals, WR Jacoby Jones ~ Texans) do not count toward the compensatory pick calculation.
