There are 4 possible comp picks left.

The Texans lose 4, sign 1
The Jets lose 4, sign 1
The Eagles lose 4, sign 1


How many comp picks do each of these 3 teams get?
The 14 teams that lose a net 2 would not supersede the 3 teams that lose net 3. So your premise is off. What would likely happen is the teams that lost the top 32 players in terms of largest contract amounts/year would get the comp picks. In your scenario, the players who signed for lowest 5 contracts/year would not be compensated for.
