The New York Giants were awarded an additional fifth-round compensatory pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, the league announced on Monday.

Compensatory draft picks are awarded to NFL teams based upon the successes its' free agents experience upon leaving their team, along with the acquisitions the team acquires over the offseason. For New York, that included Martellus Bennett, Osi Umenyiora, Chase Blackburn and Domenik Hixon, along with the signings of Josh Brown, Ryan Mundy and Brandon Myers.

The Giants have had success in the past with their compensatory picks. Former Giants Ahmad Bradshaw and David Tyree were both selected with compensatory picks awarded to the Giants. Bradshaw was taken in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft while David Tyree the 2003 sixth round.

In total, the NFL awarded 32 compensatory picks to 13 NFL teams. Baltimore and the New York Jets received four total picks. Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Pittsburgh and St. Louis received three picks. Cincinnati, Detroit and Green Bay received two picks. New England and San Francisco joined the Giants receiving one.
