The New York Giants hold the sixth and 17th overall selections in the 2019 NFL Draft, the fourth time the team will pick in the top 10 over the past five years. In the wake of Wednesday's trade with the Browns, the Giants currently own 12 selections in the 2019 draft, including their two first-round selections, two in the fourth round (one acquired from New Orleans in the Eli Apple trade), and three in the fifth round – their own, the choice they received from Detroit for Damon Harrison, and a compensatory selection. The Giants have one choice in the second, third and sixth rounds, and two in the seventh round (selections acquired from the Rams for linebacker Alec Ogletree and the Vikings for center Brett Jones; their own seventh-rounder was sent to Denver for punter Riley Dixon).
