The New York Giants have a league-high 12 selections in this year’s NFL Draft as a result of a combination of trades and compensatory selections. Actually, they only received one “comp” pick this year, but could have as many as four next season — one in the third round and three in the seventh.

According Over the Cap, the Giants have had six “qualifying” losses in free agency agency this year to just two qualifying gains. A qualifying player is one whose contract expired at the end of the 2018 NFL year on March 13 (players who were released by their teams before of after March are not figured into the equation). Where the picks fall are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. Comp picks are awarded anywhere from the third to the seventh round of the draft.

OTC’s cancellation chart outlines the Giants’ gains versus their losses thus far this season — if the Giants are truly done adding or losing qualifying players, which they appear to be.

The Giants are on track to receive a third round pick for allowing All-Pro safety Landon Collins to sign a six-year, $84 million deal with Washington in free agency last month. They currently have no equivalent add to offset that.

The three seventh round comp picks that are in the money at the moment are for the loses of defensive linemen Josh Mauro (Oakland), Kerry Wynn (Cincinnati) and Mario Edwards (New Orleans).

Their losses of two other starters: offensive lineman Jamon Brown to Atlanta and cornerback B.W. Webb to Cincinnati are being canceled out by the free agent additions of wide receiver Golden Tate and outside linebacker Markus Golden.

Let me say here that OTC had projected the Giants would receive a 4th and a 5th round pick in this draft, but when the picks were announced in February, the Giants received only the 5th rounder. OTC had offensive lineman Justin Pugh and linebacker Devon Kennard rated a round higher than the NFL did, it seems.

The Giants did quality for a seventh rounder (Geno Smith), but it was not in the top 32, so there was no award given.

If this chart holds true, the Giants will have 12 picks in 2020: one in each of the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds, two in the third and five in the seventh. Keep in mind that they have two sevenths next year going into this process — theirs and the one they received from New Orleans as part of the Eli Apple trade.
