The New York Giants did not receive any compensatory picks in the 2021 NFL draft and it appears that tend will carry over into 2022.

Over the Cap recently completed their compensatory projections for next year’s draft and of the 32 picks likely to be handed out, the Giants will once again receive none. In fact, they didn’t even factor into the overflow.

However, several signings made by the Giants will impact other teams, including the Detroit Lions, who lost wide receiver Kenny Golladay to Big Blue.

As of now, only two 3rd rounders are projected to be awarded: to the Steelers for Bud Dupree going to the Titans, and to the Lions for Kenny Golladay going to the Giants.

Additionally, how much wide receiver John Ross plays in 2021 will also impact the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Giants signed John Ross to a $2.5M APY contract. However, they just used their 2021 first round pick to get Kadarius Toney, and their wide receiver depth chart is deep alongside him with Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, and Darius Slayton also on the team. If Ross can’t get on the field, that’s bad news for the Bengals, who need him to be a CFA in order to positive in the net number of CFAs lost. If Ross isn’t a CFA, that would be devastating for Cincinnati, who could lose a 4th or 3rd round comp pick for the departure of one of either William Jackson III or Carl Lawson.

Only five of the Giants’ free agents — Dalvin Tomlinson, Kyler Fackrell, Colt McCoy, Wayne Gallman and David Mayo (released) — have gone on to sign with another team. Seven remain unsigned, while three of the four players the team released also remain unsigned.

The loss of Tomlinson was canceled out by the signing of Golladay, while the additions of Ross and running back Devontae Booker count against the Giants in the compensatory pick formula.
