Your Biggest NYG Draft Surprise Round One

M.S. : 1/13/2022 8:44 am

Here's mine: Either at 5 or 7, or a trade nearby these picks, the new General Manager & Head Coach select QB Matt Corral out of Ole Miss, and provide him with the best pass protection ever in the form of letting Daniel Jones take the vast majority of snaps in 2022. And if Daniel Jones somehow, someway delivers a masterful performance, well, then, the Giants have a very nice problem on their hands.
OOf.

That would be a "surprise" for sure.
Well if the new GM trades Jones this wont be a surprise  
Jim in Forest Hills : 1/13/2022 8:46 am : link
but yeah.

A CB would also surprise me.

if Schoen is our GM...just thinking about his background and the Allen pick, Corral is kind of the opposite of that, i wouldn't think he'd be interested

If Stingley is available, you could make the argument that he should be the pick at 5 regardless of who is on the board, assuming the DEs are gone

He's a legit top-10 talent. I don't think he's better than Stingley, but he certainly is healthier.

Jordan Davis and Demarvin Leal would take me for a loop...

Good players but the complete opposite of what everyone thinks they're going to do.

If Stingley is available, that would not surprise me at all.

CB is being overshadowed as a need, but it will be a need nonetheless. And imo, it is very likely that Stingley is BPA at 5.

Bradberry and Jackson could easily both be gone after next year.

that would certainly be one way to beef up the DL

How much of Stingley's health concerns should be taken as a business decision after locking the 1st round status as a freshman? Seems to be what a lot of LSU fans think.

I'm not sure, but he clearly took a step back his sophomore year and apparently injuries were to blame.

I will admit I thought Josh Allen was a bust waiting to happen and thought the Bills were dumb for picking him that high. I learned some of the professionals know what they are doing.

That said, if Schoen comes in and picks a QB that high (which I don't support), I will trust that they know better and be fully supportive of the pick.
my opinion may change after

all of the pre-draft workouts but right now if we stay pat at 5 and 7 and do anything other than try to upgrade the OL, Pass Rush, or QB situation, I'll be left a bit surprised. I'm not sure how I feel about Hamilton yet, that's TBD.
I think the only surprise  
section125 : 1/13/2022 9:11 am : link
pick would be RB. I would expect one round 3 or later.

RB, DT or TE with the #5 and #7 picks would be surprising.

An argument could be made for any other position. I might be surprised with QB, too. I like Willis best, but IDK if he is worth that high of a pick.
Id be surprised with a QB  
BLUATHRT : 1/13/2022 9:15 am : link
Pickett is the only guy rated remotely high enough at this point of the draft process to be pushed into the top 10 because of QB value. I just can't see a new GM using a premium pick on less than consensus QB prospect after the DJ scrutiny.
Giants trade back from both 1st round picks  
Lines of Scrimmage : 1/13/2022 9:26 am : link
Go BPA on D with both picks. BBI melts down about the OL but then they add 3 OL in rounds 2-4 and three more before the end of draft/UDFA. Giants go into 2023 with two 1's, 2's and 3's and add extra 2nd, 3rd and two 4th in 2022.

The line and address the pass rush.

Only surprise to me would be a DB.

Too funny!

But I wouldn't mind this guy with our second 3rd Round pick at #81!

I think we will find out DJ's health is a huge concern as he is one hit away from being out of football

And we only find this out because we draft Pickett
It would be QB  
Sammo85 : 1/13/2022 10:55 am : link
.

Close second would be WR.

I wouldn't be shocked by a slight trade down with one of the picks at all.

I think they go OL and Edge/LB with their first rounders.
Pickett would be a surprise,  
Section331 : 1/13/2022 10:56 am : link
and an unpleasant one for me. Any of the QB's would be surprising with one of the top 10 picks. I'd be a little surprised if they weren't OL and/or ER, but I'm fine with BPA. There are so many needs, any player will help.
trade one of the picks back...  
nyfootballfan : 1/13/2022 12:01 pm : link
there are no top 10 QBs on the board this year.
sign a FA to compete with DJ (as suggested by others here)
let them take the knocks for a year while rebuilding the OL.
trade out of both picks  
nyfootballfan : 1/13/2022 12:05 pm : link
for '23 R1's plus several top 100 '22 picks.
there are no top 10 QBs on the board this year.
sign FA's to compete with DJ (as suggested by others here)
let them take the knocks for a year while rebuilding the OL
and filling in the talent gap. a pseudo-tank to upgrade the roster over two years.
ugh sorry  
nyfootballfan : 1/13/2022 12:06 pm : link
i submitted an incomplete thought.
trade 1 pick? aw hell BOTH! lol
It Hinges On

Jones neck. I am airing on the side of it being a possible career threatening deal. Corral would be more ideal to take than Pickett.

I saw a mock yesterday that had the Giants taking Neal at #5 and Kyle Hamilton at #7. As a ND fan I can vouch for Hamilton and with Jabrill Peppers on the downward slope Hamilton would make a nice addition with McKinney on the back end of the defense.
