Current teams with Type A players signed by another team would receive a Mid-1st Round to Mid-2nd Round compensation pick from the signing team, plus a sandwich pick between the 1st and 2nd Round from the league.

A team losing a Type A Free Agent to a team signing more than one Type A Free Agent may receive a lower round pick.

The current team that loses a Type B player receives compensation from the league with a sandwich pick between the 1st and 2nd rounds, but below Type A compensation picks.  The team signing that player is not required to give up draft pick compensation.
