The Giants today were awarded a compensatory selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, which gives them two choices in the fifth round and seven overall.
The selection they received will be the 34th in the fifth round, the 174th overall pick. The Giants own their choices in each of the first six rounds. They surrendered their seventh-round selection in the Oct. 4 trade with Carolina that sent linebacker Jon Beason to the Giants.
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.
The 32 compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 224 choices in the seven rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft (May 8-10), which will kick off in primetime for the fifth consecutive year.
The first round will be held on Thursday, May 8 and begin at 8:00 PM ET. The second and third rounds are set for Friday, May 9 at 7:00 PM ET followed by rounds 4-7 on Saturday, May 10 at 12:00 PM ET.
The Giants now hold the 12th, 43rd, 74th, 109th, 140th, 174th and 187th picks in this year's draft.
