Giants receive fourth-round compensatory pick in 2018 NFL Draft

On Friday, the NFL awarded the Denver Broncos a third-round compensatory pick, No. 99 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. The number of compensatory selections a team receives depends on the number of these types of players they lose or gain. The picks are just the 18th and 19th compensatory choices the Vikings have received since the National Football League began awarding extra picks to teams who lost players in free agency in 1994.

Compensatory free agents are determined "by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors", and not every free agent lost or signed by a team is covered by this formula.

The additional sixth-round picks for the Raiders will be at No. 210, 212, 216 and 217.

Last year, the Raiders made Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley their first round pick, though he barely played due to a shin injury this past season.

The team gained the following following free agent in 2017: Jahri Evans.

The Browns received four compensatory picks in last year's draft and traded all of them. Receiving four picks was tied for the most in the National Football League along with 14 other teams.

It is not a surprise because overthecap.com projected the Giants to receive a fourth-round pick as compensation for Hankins and NJ Advance Media's seven-round mock draft projections have included the pick.
