Are the Bears going to be awarded any compensatory draft picks this year for losing Alshon Jeffery in free agency?

The Bears were not given any compensatory picks this year. Last Friday the NFL announced that it had awarded 32 picks to 15 different teams. The Bengals, Cowboys and Packers were given the most with four apiece. While the Bears did lose receiver Alshon Jeffery in free agency as you mentioned, they also signed several players and the compensatory picks are awarded based on a net loss of free agents. So that's why the Bears didn't receive any extra draft choices.
