The Giants will receive an extra fourth-round selection in the upcoming draft after the National Football League announced its compensatory picks on Friday.

According to National Football League rules, if a team loses more or better free agents than it acquires in the previous year, that team is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

This year, in addition to the team's own seven selections, they received two picks from trades: A fourth-round selection was acquired from San Francisco in a draft-day trade for Kapri Bibbs, and a fifth-round pick was received in a September trade with Atlanta for tackle Ty Sambrailo.

The Broncos are among eight teams that received one compensatory pick.

The picks were awarded to 15 teams total, with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders tied for the most at four apiece.

Green Bay lost the following free agents in 2017: Jared Cook, Micah Hyde, Eddie Lacy, T.J. Lang, Julius Peppers, and J.C. Tretter.

The Minnesota Vikings were the only other team to receive multiple picks, with both coming in Round 6. All compensatory picks are awarded at the end of Rounds 3 through 7. The No. 103 overall was traded to New England as part of the Jamie Collins trade; the No. 139 overall pick was a part of the Carson Wentz trade with Philadelphia; the No. 142 overall pick was traded to Houston as part of the deal to acquire the Texans' second-round pick this year and quarterback Brock Osweiler; and the No. 181 overall pick was traded to the New York Jets.

With the last seventh-round pick awarded (No. 256 overall), the Atlanta Falcons hold the final pick of the 2018 draft and the right to select Mr.

Compensatory picks were previously not allowed to be traded, until a rule change allowed dealing such picks starting in 2017.

Most expected the Packers to gain four extra picks after losing several top players in free agency last offseason.
