Lots of Mock drafts appearing

56GiantsUK : 1/27/2022 5:07 am
With different connotations with the fifth pick for the giants, sometimes edge sometimes OT with different players listed.

Always fun to see these but at the end of the day isn't the top priority with the 5th pick a top offensive tackle ?

We just can't go into the new season with the right hand side of the line as it is.

5th Offensive Tackle

7th Edge rusher ?

or if they are seriously wanting to bolster the O Line maybe OT and the highly touted Linderbaum at Center ?

I know that leaves us searching for D line pressure but with with the offense not scoring points because of the turnstile O line apart from Thomas who is solid, the emphasis is OL in the first round ?

I fully expect

the Giants to draft at least three OL in this draft. At what point in the draft is the question. At #5 and #7 I believe they will do one of two things. They will pick the best player available regardless of position, or they will trade down to an area where the BPA will be an OL.

So much can change between now and the draft in terms of the ranking of players. It will be awhile before we can accurately assess whom the Giants see as the top five (or top seven) players in this draft. There are always surprises!

If we don't trade 5 nor 7.....

Any of these players would be fine:

Significant amount of things that will likely happen

between now and the draft that will affect our draft strategy.

Head coach, OC, DC, scouting changes.

Free agency



Better feel for players currently on the roster dealing with significant injuries

Mock drafts are fun and can be informative but are hardly be all end all.

Who we might be looking at if the draft were held today might be (or might not be) vastly different from whom we're looking at in 3 months.
this draft is not one of top talent but extremely deep

Carolina at 1st obvious team going QB.

So my hope the Giants are getting calls for QB needy teams that are further back.....several at 9-15....adding a couple of picks....

4 NFL quality OL

A 2 way TE

Premium DL

Edge/pass rush


Once Bradberry is cut add CB to the list

And there are some great options at the top of the draft.
We all know there will

be lots of cuts made to clear CAP. They will suck this year, so eating dead money will not hurt as much.

After cuts, we should see what direction they will be heading.
I would think OL is definite for one of the two

first round picks. Edge most likely for 2nd one of those.

But, lots of needs, so lots of direction for that Edge pick. Could be something else.
It so hard  
Bruner4329 : 1/27/2022 8:44 am : link
Right now to predict anything without seeing what happens pre draft with cuts and how much we can free in Cap Space to maybe squeeze in a couple of players before the April draft. I believe they will try and sign 1 or 2 OLs (solid but not necessarily the glamour FAs) and if that is the case it gives them more flexibility with the first round picks. They will pick an OL at 5 or 7 but under the scenario I just painted, an edge or top CB would be a great option with the other pick.
