Sure, it’s NFL mock draft season once more and we’re required to chew into the apple as properly. Luke Easterling of USA Right now’s Draft Wire simply launched his latest four-round mock of the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft to be held in Las Vegas from April 23-25.
Right here’s who he sees the New York Giants choosing:
Spherical 1, Decide 4 – OT Andrew Thomas, Georgia
If the Giants need Daniel Jones to turn into a real franchise quarterback, they’re going to have to guard him. Normal supervisor Dave Gettleman is as old-school as they arrive, so don’t be stunned when he spends this choose in the trenches. Shifting again can be ideally suited given this 12 months’s depth at each sort out and alongside the inside, but when they’re caught right here, Thomas is a robust choose.”
Couldn’t agree extra. I by no means argue with a excessive choose that’s used on a participant that both retains your quarterback vertical or the opposing quarterback horizontal.
This choose does a number of issues. It will get Nate Solder off left sort out and maybe over to the correct facet, the place it will be a win-win for the Giants. Once more, buying and selling again might be the most effective transfer right here for the reason that Giants actually may use the third spherical choose they gift-wrapped the New York Jets in the Leonard Williams deal.
Spherical 2, Decide 36 – EDGE Terrell Lewis, Alabama
Once more, a go rusher with a ton of upside. We’ve seen this two years working in Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines. Perhaps they’ll get it proper this time.
Spherical 3, Decide 68 – Traded to the New York Jets in change for DI Leonard Williams. The Giants are more likely to have a compensatory choice on the finish of this spherical on account of shedding Landon Collins in free company final March.
Spherical 4, Decide 100 – CB Troy Delight Jr. Notre Dame
Delight is a gifted athlete who can come proper in and compete for a task on the Giants’ protection, however the greater query is why are they taking one other cornerback after loading up on them the previous two drafts?
Evaluation: Personally, I really feel like this draft must be all about recouping the picks that Gettleman wasted away in the Williams commerce. There can be inquiries from groups searching for to maneuver as much as seize a quarterback, however will he pay attention? With simply 4 picks in the highest 100, this roster may certainly use at the very least six in the primary 100, so if Gettleman doesn’t commerce again many will see this as a missed alternative.
