I had to adjust the calculations from for the Giants' respective slots because they were not added correctly on the site on account of them not corresponding to the giants' actual selections. Jason Fitzgerald does a FANTASTIC job on that site nonetheless, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND visiting his site to learn about how the cap works.

Here goes already with the estimated cap numbers for the Giants' 7 drafted rookies. The estimated total according to my figures below for all 7 picks is $4,643,388. The numbers below correspond to each individual player's draft slot:

Cap hits for players 52 through 84 on the roster at this time.

Including the 7 drafted rookie from last week's draft, there are currently 84 players on the 90-man roster. Here are the cap numbers in chronological order for players 52 to 84. Since the Top 51 cap rule is in effect, on account of this being the off-season, these players' cap numbers DO NOT COUNT towards the salary cap at this time. Here they are:

At present, the Giants are OFFICIALLY $3,927,958 under the salary cap.

RT @gregaiello After further review, unsigned draft choices DO count on roster. Change was made when roster limit went from 80 to 90.
