Compensatory Draft Picks: Giants don't get any

New, comments

Giants not awarded any extra picks in 2015 NFL Draft.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

As anticipated, the New York Giants will not receive any of the 32 compensatory draft selections that were awarded by the NFL on Monday night.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. Because of how active the Giants were in free agency a season ago, acquiring far more players than they lost, it is no surprise they won't gain additional picks in the upcoming draft.

The Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs will all receive four compensatory selections. The Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans will have three.

The Giants enter the April 30-May 2 draft with eight selections, two in the seventh round. The extra selection came from trading placekicker Brandon McManus to the Denver Broncos.
