Giants receive fourth-round compensatory pick in 2018 NFL Draft

Thirty-two compensatory draft picks were awarded to 15 National Football League teams Friday, and the Patriots landed a fourth-round selection, coming in at No. 136 overall. However, due to trades the Steelers do not have a fourth-round pick or a sixth-round pick. So maybe new GM Brian Gutekunst will wheel two fourths and three fifths for a third?

The NFL awards compensatory picks based on free-agent departures the previous spring. Eighteen of last year's 32 picks were traded before or during the draft, including four that were traded twice and one that was traded three times. The Chargers have been awarded an additional seventh-round pick (251st overall). Under the system, teams that suffer a net loss of compensatory free agents (CFA) during the prior free agency signing period are eligible to receive a corresponding number of compensatory selections in the following year's draft, up to a maximum of four selections. Both picks are in the sixth round. Arizona received the highest compensatory pick at No. 97 overall.

The Cardinals had traded offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom to the Ravens for a conditional seventh-round pick last summer, but conditions were not met and the Ravens kept the pick.
