Make sure to check out all of our other NFL team mock drafts here.
Round 1, Pick 4: Isaiah Simmons, OLB, Clemson
The Giants can almost do no wrong here. If Jeffrey Okudah drops here, you take Okudah. If you feel like you need to add a weapon for Jones or maybe some protection, you have your pick of the best available. But Simmons is a tone-setting, physical freak of nature. He can play any linebacker position as well as play safety. Honestly, he may be able to put his hand in the dirt and rush the passer. He is that dominating a force on the defensive side of the ball.
Round 2, Pick 36: A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
Maybe if you just draft Clemson players you will succeed? But with the struggles of DeAndre Baker last season, and a need at this position, the Giants would be fools to let a talent like Terrell slip any further than he should. They could go grab a receiver at this spot but there is plenty of depth to grab one later.
Round 3, Pick 101: Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
The Giants need a target for Jones to fall in love with. So why not pick one that will help with run blocking as well? Evan Engram is a really good player, when healthy. I would not trust him to be your full-time TE. Trautman is very athletic, he has good hands and is very quick for a 250-pound man. He has that basketball IQ that every good NFL TE needs so he can go high-point the ball and become a real threat down the field.
Round 4, Pick 110: Robert Hunt, OT, Louisiana-Lafayette
If the Giants don’t address this position with their top pick, we may see them wait to grab a tackle. Sometimes, you need to draft based on the best player available, not need. Hunt is a big, powerful guy who will rely on his strength. I see him more as an IOL in the NFL because of his strength and his poor feet and hand speed. I like him as a prospect, but he may be better suited at a guard spot.
Round 5, Pick 151: K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio State
The all-time leader for receptions at Ohio State will be a steal in the later rounds. He has very reliable hands, he’s physical, and was a natural leader the first day he came to Columbus.
Round 6, Pick 183: Terence Steele, OT, Texas Tech
When you need some depth at offensive line, you take many gambles in the late rounds. That is all this pick is. More depth at a position where they need more depth.
Round 7, Pick 219: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn
Same thing I just said, when you need tackle depth, you can grab a few in the later rounds. I can also see them grab a guard here, but I think that they should really focus on tackles in the later rounds.
Round 7, Pick 239: Kelly Bryant, QB, Missouri
I am a big fan of taking QBs in the seventh round. Especially if you took a QB early in the previous year and it’s still up in the air if he will be your future guy. I can see Bryant become a Taysom Hill type player with his athletism. He won’t turn a franchise around, but he could contribute to a team in other ways.
