1st Round – Isaiah Simmons (LB – Clemson)
Most think the Giants will go into this pick thinking OT, but has Dave Gettleman has said they will draft the best player on the board, and in this scenario, it is Isaiah Simmons.
Simmons is a freak of nature and the tone-setter that the Giants need.
2nd Round – Austin Jackson (OT – USC)
If the Giants do not go tackle in the first round, they will in the second.
Jackson has the first-round talent, but with such a good tackle class, he falls to the second round. Jackson will go into camp competing for the RT spot.
3rd Round – Matt Hennessy (C – Temple)
The Giants do not look like they will re-sign Jon Halapio, meaning they only have one center on the roster, Spencer Pulley.
Hennessy was named third-team AP All-American, first-team All-American Conference, and a finalist for the Remington Trophy as the nation’s best pivot in 2019.
4th Round – Chase Claypool (WR – Notre Dame)
This is a unique pick for the Giants because it seems that they are content at the WR position. Gettleman said he wants to upgrade the bottom of the depth chart and going with Claypool will defiantly be an upgrade.
The Giants do not have a big red-zone WR target, and Claypool fills that need with his 6’4 height and his 6’7 wingspan.
5th Round- Darrell Taylor (DE – Tennessee)
Giants inside linebacker’s coach Kevin Sherrer is familiar with Taylor after just working with him at Tennessee.
At Tennessee, Taylor posted 8.5 sacks and ten tackles for loss in his senior year. Taylor could be a day three steal who can be brought in and make an impact immediately.
6th Round – Cam Brown (LB — Penn St)
This pick can be a developmental pick for the Giants. Cam Brown was a team captain for Penn State and his massive size will get other team’s attention. Brown needs to gain some muscle, but he has the speed and length to make open-field tackles.
7th Round – Jordan Fuller (S – Ohio State)
Adding to an already young secondary, the Giants will get an incredible athlete with excellent range, good speed, size, and strength.
Though, Fuller has one major flaw: He is a very poor tackler. In the 7th round, Fuller can start his career working with the special teams unit then eventually becoming part of the defensive rotation.
7th Round – Jonathan Garvin (DE – Miami)
Garvin is a unique player because he was inconsistent at Miami getting to the Quarterback, but teams say he has day two talent.
The reason he falls to the Giants here is that Garvin gives inconsistent effort, and with a coach like Joe Judge, he can change up Garvin’s effort issues.
7th Round – Darrynton Evans (RB – Appalachian St)
It is a new coaching staff, but at the end of last year, the Giants seemed to give up on Wayne Gallman.
In the 7th round, drafting another RB is not an issue because he can be a special teamer and return specialist with his elusive speed.
Evans was second out of all RBs at the combine running a 4.41 40 yard dash.
