for whoever we take at 6 & 17.
The more I think about it, the more I could care less which direction we go. We have so many holes now, we have question marks just about every place. So no matter who we pick, we should be come better instantly and for the future (assuming the pick pans out). There are a lot of options we can go...
QB - Haskins seems like the only logical choice the giants would go early in the draft. Murray is going number 1. It may be too early for Lock/Jones. So if Haskins is the guy at 6, we have our future QB on the roster and can play him as soon as we are out of the playoffs. Jones becomes an option at 17, and I know many people are souring on him due to a vareity of reasons, but the one thing that sticks out with him is that there were games where he stunk, and there were games where he was very good. The common denominator is that his supporting xast was pretty terrible all year. Seeing him with functional options is something that can make him better.
WR - Not in play at #6, but could be at 17 if they fall in love with a guy like Campbell or Metcalf. I would assume these would be the only 2 in the first round that might be in play and they bring something that we dont have. Burner speed.
TE - Hockenson could be in play with either pick. A 2 TE set with a dominating blocker and receiving threat with Hockenson, and a great receiving threat in Engram. The two TE system can work if utilized properly. And it doesnt hurt we help Barkley with a Hockenson type pick.
RT - Dilliard and Williams looks like 2 guys who could be in play at 17, maybe even Taylor. Chad Wheeler is awful. We need a replacement ASAP. Either of these guys will step in immediately and hopefully lock the job down for 10 years.
Interior Line - Gary will be looked at 6. The production at Michigan can be questioned but the skills cannot. He is a great run defender with the ability to get to the QB. Wilkins maybe in play with one of the picks as well. A guy who just always dominates as well. Would love either of these guys in this draft.
Edge - Sweat has the physical skills we have never seen. Josh Allen has the production and physical skills to dominate. It would be great adding one of these guys to the fray and see them develop into a premier pass rusher.
MLB - White and Bush could be first round options as well. Both are blazing fast with natural instincts to hit anything in their way. We havent had a good MLB since Pierce - so I am sure these two will be fun to watch for years.
So there we have over a dozen options (and I am sure people can throw in a few more) that will have an opportunity to be drafted by the Giants. I am sick of the negativity of this guy and that guy. From here on out, I am just looking forward to who we draft and watching them help the team ASAP.
