Most of the picks awarded are going to be 6th and 7th round, which don't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.
The thing is somehow the Ravens managed to be one of the teams that has been receiving a ton of comp picks since forever.
And they seem to have a pretty good team overall for quite a long time.

Is there a good formula for a GM to consider?

The Pats are also notorious for having a lot of picks and you can't argue with their success.
