2020 NFL Draft: Compensatory pick projections for every team - NFL.com

The Giants are projected to get a pair of compensatory picks. Here is how NFL com breaks it down:

Key free-agent additions: Golden Tate (Eagles); Markus Golden (Cardinals).

Veterans Janoris Jenkins, Michael Thomas and Antoine Bethea are playing key roles in teaching the Giants’ plethora of inexperienced defensive backs:

“The coaches have been doing a great job of teaching,” Thomas said Tuesday night at the United Way Gridiron Gala, where he was being honored for his charitable contributions in the community. “And explaining, they’re understanding that with some of the age difference in our secondary that you’re going to have to rely on players to coach up a little bit, as well. The fact that our coaches are allowing us to do that at this early stage, is a blessing. We have a great group, now we just have to get to work.”
