The cancellation chart at Over The Cap shows that the Giants signed three free agents who count in the compensatory pick formula — Kenny Golladay, Devontae Booker and John Ross. They lost only one — Dalvin Tomlinson.
Next year’s draft, which will include a number of players who returned to school after receiving an extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic, is expected to be a talent-rich one. That makes the Giants’ work in the recent draft, collecting extra first- and fourth-round picks in a Round 1 trade down with the Chicago Bears and an extra fourth-round pick in a Round 2 trade down with the Miami Dolphins, even more valuable.
The Giants have 10 selections in the 2022 draft. Five of those are projected by Tankathon to be in the top 100 and eight are projected to be in the top 150. Tankathon’s current draft power rankings, based on values assigned by the traditional Jimmy Johnson trade chart, have the Giants No. 5 in overall draft capital for 2022.
