Updated NFL Draft Order: Remaining picks for Giants


The Giants kicked off the 2024 NFL Draft by staying put at No. 6 and selecting Malik Nabers, LSU's all-time leader in career catches and receiving yards.

Nabers helped his class make history as the first 14 selections were on the offensive side of the ball, surpassing the previous record of seven set in 2021. Overall, Thursday night saw a record 23 offensive players chosen in the first round. The previous high was 19, which occurred three times in 1968, 2004, and 2009.

The Giants then bolstered their secondary on Day 2 with the selections of Minnesota safety Tyler Nubin in the second round and Kentucky cornerback Dru Phillips in the third round.

Day 3, which consists of Rounds 4-7, will begin Saturday at 12 p.m. ET. The Giants hold one pick in the fourth (No. 107), fifth (No. 166) and sixth (No. 183) rounds.

The Giants sent their seventh-round choice to the Arizona Cardinals last year for linebacker Isaiah Simmons, whom they recently re-signed. This year, the Giants obtained two-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Brian Burns in a trade with the Panthers, sending them a 2024 second-round draft choice (No. 39) and a 2025 fifth-round selection and agreeing to a swap of fifth rounders this year (the Giants getting No. 166 and sending No. 141 to Carolina).

Currently, each of the 32 clubs receives one pick in each of the seven rounds of the NFL Draft (the number of teams drafting has changed over time, and there have been as many as 30 rounds in a single draft).

The order of selection is determined by the reverse order of finish in the previous season. Barring any trades between clubs, each round starts with the team that finished with the worst record and ends with the Super Bowl champions.

Teams that didn't qualify for the playoffs are assigned draft slots 1-20. The order is determined by the standings at the end of the regular season: The club with the worst record will pick first, and the one with the best record will pick 20th.

Teams that did qualify for the playoffs are assigned draft slots 21-32. The order is determined by the results of the previous year's postseason play:

  • The four teams eliminated in the wild card round pick in slots 21-24 in the reverse order of their final regular season records.
  • The four teams eliminated in the divisional round pick in slots 25-28 in the reverse order of their final regular season records.
  • The two teams that lost in the conference championships pick in the 29th and 30th spots in the reverse order of their final regular season records.
  • The team that lost the Super Bowl has the 31st pick in the draft.
  • The Super Bowl champion has the 32nd and final spot in each round.

In situations where teams finished the previous season with identical records, the determination of draft position is decided by strength of schedule — the aggregate winning percentage of a team's opponents. The team that played the schedule with the lowest winning percentage will be awarded the higher pick.

If the teams have the same strength of schedule, division or conference tiebreakers are applied. If the divisional or conference tiebreakers are not applicable, or ties still exist between teams of different conferences, ties will be broken the following tie-breaking method:

  1. Head-to-head, if applicable
  2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games (minimum of four)
  3. Strength of victory in all games
  4. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed in all games
  5. Best net points in all games
  6. Best net touchdowns in all games
  7. Coin toss


Under the terms of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, the league also can assign as many as 32 additional "compensatory free agent" picks, which allow clubs that have lost free agents to another team to use the draft to try to fill the void. The awarded picks take place at the end of the third through seventh round.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a proprietary formula, developed by the NFL Management Council, which considers a player's salary, playing time and postseason honors.

The value of the compensatory free agents gained or lost by each team is totaled, and a team is awarded picks of equal value to the net loss of compensatory free agents, up to a maximum of four.

Starting in 2017, compensatory picks may be traded.
