Hypothetically - Would you be ok with these first 2 picks?

Saos1n : 4/6/2021 3:18 pm
1 - Your choice of Slater or Sewell (Neither may be there. Just hypothetical)
2 - Trade up to the the 26th pick (Cleveland), ahead of Baltimore for Creed Humphrey

Invest heavily in the oline, despite recent capital spent there. Focus on defensive depth and WR in the later rounds?
No trade up for interior Olinemen  
Tom in NY : 4/6/2021 3:20 pm : link
Go BPA among the WR, OL, Edge group in Round 2, and follow-up with best Interior OL in Round 3 if not the selection in Round 2 (e.g. Aaron Banks).
no...

Sewell at #11 works for me  
JonC : 4/6/2021 3:22 pm : link
otherwise no.

The talent/grade matching what they are looking for (and need) figures to be at WR, Edge, CB. They could address one at #11, move up from #42 to address one or stay put, and address another at #74.

Eg, Smith or Edge at #11, OL at #42, CBt #74 is plausible.
If the Giants like what they have developing on their OL ( only they

really know), then Slater or Sewell would be enough. They need to turn their attention to other areas as well, imv
I agree with no trade up

I would prefer Sewell but I would be fine with Slater as well. Football games are won in the trenches not with dainty Wide Receivers.
yes and no  
SLIM_ : 4/6/2021 3:25 pm : link
Fine with having a stud lineman in the 1st.

Not fine with trading up for another. Say what you want about Gettleman but he has had some historical success of finding good lineman later in the draft (even college free agents like Gates). He's already spent a #1, #2 and #3. I have no problems with spending a #1 but after that, we need to get some inexpensive pieces.
At some point  
GiantsRage2007 : 4/6/2021 3:25 pm : link
You need to find mid-to-late round picks and coach them up.

I would think....no  
George from PA : 4/6/2021 3:25 pm : link
Especially, if they spent a 1st already
probably not  
NYG22 : 4/6/2021 3:27 pm : link
but its an incomplete question given that you don't state the cost of the trade up.

I'd much rather this:

-LT Andrew Thomas
-LG Shane Lemieux
-C Nick Gates
-RG Alex Leatherwood, Landon Dickerson or Wyatt Davis via RD2
-RT Matt Peart

Back up IOL: Hernandez, Fulton and Harrison or Murphy
Swing OT: Solder (or Peart if Solder wins RT job)

I

am constantly amazed at how many people every year want to trade up, especially given the generally poor stature of the roster.

Gonna be a ton of good guards available round 2 and 3 without moving up. Id be ok with slater or sewell but rather we went in the playmaker direction at 11.
I would not be pissed of Sewell feel to us  
RAIN : 4/6/2021 4:51 pm : link
... but Nick Gates was damn good.
There's a chance Humphrey could be had with a trade DOWN  
Gatorade Dunk : 4/6/2021 4:54 pm : link
in the 2nd round. I'd be disappointed if they traded UP into the 1st round to get him, especially when Gates is probably our best OL right now.
BPA at 11,  
section125 : 4/6/2021 5:00 pm : link
whether it is Sewell, Smith Waddle, Surtain, Pitts or Horn.

There will be good players at 42, no need to move up.
Okay with 1st pick. Moving up on 2nd no  
giantstock : 4/6/2021 5:44 pm : link
If Sewell slipped I assume he is without a doubt highest rated.

I favor the following ofc the ratings need to be near the same: For example if Giants have someone rated ahead Slater between the usual suspects of Pitts, the WR's, Sewell and Parsons I'd be fine. Maybe the top CB's-- maybe but slightly skeptical.

I fear the Edges is more of a draft for need rather BPA. I'm just very, very skeptical of the Giants 1st round draft picks the last 3 years and i think that's where they're going to go. Just hope they are right.

To start with let's just say Sewell will not be available.

1-- Guard imo is 1st need in rd 1.

Then BPA between Edge, WR, and OT in rounds 2-4.

This would be my favorite four.

This is same for me. Although I’m more of a DT guy than an Edge guy (trading up for our second pick). Anyone other than a WR at 11 would depress me. You can move back and get all those equivalent edges.
Yes, I'm OK  
WideRight : 4/6/2021 8:31 pm : link
thanks for asking

Micko : 4/6/2021 8:42 pm : link
Hard for me to imagine that Solder isn’t a starter when it’s all said and done.
I'll take Slater at 11....  
Emlen'sGremlins : 4/6/2021 9:09 pm : link
....and then trade back up into the 1st Round for Phillips! Best Edge in the Draft!
No. That trade-up would be Sinorice Moss-level weird.  
Big Blue Blogger : 4/7/2021 3:31 am : link
The cost of the trade, going by chart values, would be the Giants’ third-round pick. The reports on Humphrey are a mixed bag, and I would probably hate this idea even if everyone was calling him the next Kevin Mawae. So... just, no.

I'm not arguing against the importance of the trenches, but we have invested quite a lot there recently and i would argue that in '11 our OL was not great (old and beat up) but our WRs, Nicks and Cruz were difference makers.

.. and I'm all for drafting an IOL, just preferably not in the first rd. If we were desperate for a tackle, sure, but not for a OG.

Arguably our best OG, at least in my lifetime, was drafted in the 2nd and it seems another good one could be found somewhere other than a high to mid 1st.
Sit tight  
OC2.0 : 4/7/2021 6:03 pm : link
Plenty of IOL talent to be had in 2.
Really hope OL  
Ned In Atlanta : 4/8/2021 3:13 am : link
One of first two rounds. No trade up
Sewell at 11
