The NFL announced the compensatory draft picks for the upcoming NFL Draft. The Giants were awarded a fifth round selection. (NFL Media)

Those picks are....

Round 1: Pick 12

Round 2: Pick 11 (43rd overall)

Round 3: Pick 10 (74)

Round 4: Pick 13 (113)

Round 5: Picks 12 (152) and Pick 34 (174)

Round 6: Pick 11 (187)

The Giants do not have a seventh round selection as they traded it last October to Carolina in exchange for LB Jon Beason.

The decision to award the Giants a 5th rounder was based on the ratio of talent lost vs talent acquired during the 2013 free agency period.

Lost: Martellus Bennett, Chase Blackburn, Domenik Hixon, Osi Umenyiora

Gained: Josh Brown, Ryan Mundy, Brandon Myers

This draft is one of the deepest in years, and the Giants will surely benefit from the extra pick.
