The NFL announced the compensatory draft picks for the upcoming NFL Draft. The Giants were awarded a fifth round selection. (NFL Media)
Those picks are….
Round 1: Pick 12
Round 2: Pick 11 (43rd overall)
Round 3: Pick 10 (74)
Round 4: Pick 13 (113)
Round 5: Picks 12 (152) and Pick 34 (174)
Round 6: Pick 11 (187)
The Giants do not have a seventh round selection as they traded it last October to Carolina in exchange for LB Jon Beason.
The decision to award the Giants a 5th rounder was based on the ratio of talent lost vs talent acquired during the 2013 free agency period.
Lost: Martellus Bennett, Chase Blackburn, Domenik Hixon, Osi Umenyiora
Gained: Josh Brown, Ryan Mundy, Brandon Myers
This draft is one of the deepest in years, and the Giants will surely benefit from the extra pick.
