The two choices in the Top 7 can be huge for a team that has as many holes as the Giants. They can appear with two direct starters և high impact players.
But those options can also be valuable assets as giants begin to rebuild their future. And if they depreciate this year, coming out with an extra first-round pick in the 2023 draft when they can look for a quarterback could be the smartest move.
In fact, the giants are interested in doing just that, according to SNY. It will be a bold step from the new GM Joe Shawn, և one that can pay huge dividends along the way. And it should be possible to do that, especially with a few teams that are interested in climbing until the quarter-backs get off the board.
What would the deal be like? Here’s a guess at my latest Giants 7-Round Mock Draft. My only joke is where I’ll try to trade.
Before the Giants make their first selection in the Schoen Era, they send the fifth overall selection և the fifth round to the Seattle Seahawks for the ninth general selection, the first round of 2023 և the third round of 2023.
The Seahawks need a quarterback after the sale Russell Wilsonbecause they certainly can not believe Drew Lock is their long-term answer. To get their choice, they have to go ahead of Atlanta (No. 8) և Carolina (No. 6) և to make sure that no one (like Washington in 11th or the Saints in 16th) will find a way. jump in front of them.
The price is high, but many teams have given up a lot more to climb a few notches above the draft. Prices tend to rise when quarterback defenders are involved.
As for the giants, they are happy to leave the first round, to leave another choice for future teams in this project, to shave what they need for their draft class for $ 3.3 million. Given their basic needs, it should not even have much of an impact on their draft strategy. The players they wanted at the age of five և 7 can be reached for ninety-nine.
The first stage (7:th: General) – Cincinnati CB Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner
The safe bet for five or seven will be to do the right thing first, then immerse yourself in the “Sauce”. But that was when they sandwiched the needy Panthers among those teams. Falcons at the age of eight are more likely to pick up the receiver or edge speed, but angular trace is not out of the question for them. So why wait? The Giants seem to love this 6-3’s 190-pound cut-off angle to the point where some NFL sources think it’s a “lock” that they are taking on the Gardens with one of their first two round-robin options. It is more likely that it will close when they trade with the corner James Bradburysomething they tried but still can’t do.
The first stage (9:th: from Seattle) – OT Charles Cross, Mississippi
The beauty of the Seattle predicted trade is that the giants get everything they want, plus they save money and get the first round next year. At the age of five, they would probably launch an offensive in NC Ikem Ekwonu or in Alabama Evan Neil. At the age of nine, there is a strong possibility that they can still get the Cross, 6-5, 307 pounds, which they looked at very carefully, can see as their right solution for the future. The only danger is that “Equonu” and “Neil” will enter the Top 4, and then Carolina will take the Cross in the 6th.
Second round (36:th: General) – Boston College G Zion Johnson
There are two guards in this project that everyone loves – Texas A & M’s Kenyon Green և 6-3, 2 312 Johnson. They can both be in the bottom third of the first round of the draft. But this is not clear with the guard, which is often not a priority on conscription day. And when the giants make the fourth choice of the second day, it’s not crazy to think one of them will be there. With the growing noise about Green, Johnson is more likely to fall – it will be a theft for the giants. He is big, strong, he is in the starting lineup of the first day next to the veterans Mark Glovinsky. And just like that, in the case of two starting players in their first three teams, the Giants will have a very promising offensive line.
Third round (67)th: overall) – Ohio State TE Jeremy Ruckert
The Giants can say “best available player” whatever they want, but there are some things they need to find in this draft. One is obviously the right starting point. The other is closed because of the free agent signature Ricky Sills-Jones can not do it alone, և the giants got rid of all the other viable bodies in this position. There are some solid edges in this project that are good, not great և can intrude և be effective as novices, but they can all go away on Day 2. position. He did not do as well in college as a receiver, with only 54 catches for 615 yards and 12 touches over four seasons (26 games). But he was underused in a crime that focused on two dynamic receivers. Scouts think he can be tough to fight, to get a well-deserved threat as a professional. He may be the first in this project, which means he may not go that far.
Third round (81:St. general) – Georgia RB James Cook
There are a lot of running tracks that the giants have smelled in this draft, and it certainly looks like they will try to capture one of them on the second day of the project. They do not just want someone who can handle a certain load Sacquon Barkley, hoping to keep him healthy and fresh for as long as possible, but they also want someone who might be with them – part of Saquon’s future. It seems very unlikely that Barkley will receive another contract from the Giants after his termination this season (unless he is exchanged before then). And after that they could go to such a committee on bills. The giants seem to really love it Dalvin CookLittle brother, 5-11, weighs 199 pounds, with great movements. He can change at a good pace with Barkley, whoever they bring to overcome the difficult yards in 2023.
Fourth round (112)th: total) – Oklahoma OLB Isaiah Thomas
At some point the giants will have to deal with the urgency of their transitions, but it does not have to be high in this project. They have too many other priorities է they must reach them first. But they may find some prospects for further development. Weighing 6-5, 266 pounds, Thomas had 14.5 bags in the Big 12 in the last two seasons, and at the factory he ran 4.7 points in 40, which was not bad for a man of his size. He can be an effective subject in case of fast landings, where he can just reduce the pressure Aziz Ojulari և: Leonard Williams.
Fifth round (147)th: total) – FOR SALE IN SEETL
Fifth round (173)th: general) – Danny Gray WR High School
Weighing in at 6 feet and weighing 186 pounds, Gray did not give the Mustangs big numbers, but at the factory he ran a staggering 4.33 in 40s. That put him on the radar of several NFL teams as a NFL native և kicker. The giants could use both, և definitely interested in building their future host corps, as Sterling Shepard և: Darius Slayton are in the last year of their contracts և Kenny GoladeyHis future after this year is uncertain. Gray had some problems in college, he’s going to have to show that his speed means opening up to better competition. But that bright speed is a good place to start.
Sixth round (182)th: common) – Wake Forest C Zach Tom
Yes, one offensive line player. That’s going to be the theme of this project, because that’s where the giants lack talent, especially young talent. Their current center, John Feliciano, is only a break of one or two years, so they should eventually consider developing a replacement. Weighing 6-5, 304 pounds, Tom was actually a left-hand fight for the deacon, but spies believe he would be better off as an interior specialist. He also stood out at the East-West Shrine Game Center. He may not be ready to start right away, but the giants could do worse than find a final development center of their choice this year.
