Giants awarded fifth-round compensatory pick in 2019 NFL Draft

The Giants received one compensatory pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Friday, bringing their grand total of picks to 10 this year. 

The pick will come in the fifth round, which the Redskins and Falcons also received. Now, the Giants have two picks in the fourth, fifth, and seventh rounds.

New York was awarded a compensatory pick based upon the Compensatory Draft System’s net loss formula that takes into account the loss of compensatory free agents during free agency the season prior, and free agents signed. Last season, the Giants acquired LT Nate Solder, Michael Thomas, WR Cody Latimer, and LB Kareem Martin

However, the team lost six total free agents in OL Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, OL D.J. Fluker, LB Devon Kennard, CB Ross Cockrell, and QB Geno Smith

The only round the Giants currently don’t have a pick is the third round after selecting CB Sam Beal in the supplemental draft last year.
