One of the most compelling characters in the NFL, New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman was at his scintillating best in this year’s draft.
Read on to find out how it all went so wrong for this storied franchise.
|Oshane Ximines||95||DE||Old Dominion|
|Julian Love||108||CB||Notre Dame|
|Mark McLaurin||S||Ole Miss|
|Reggie White Jr.||WR||Monmouth|
|Alex Wesley||WR||North Carolina|
TEAM 2019 Outlook
The New York Football Giants shocked the footballing world when they took Duke QB Daniel Jones with the 6th overall pick. This is either a stroke of genius from GM Dave Gettleman or just a stroke. Enough has been written about the eventual replacement for Eli Manning, only time will tell if this is a masterclass or not.
There was not a lot of offensive talent taken in the Draft by the Giants. The selection of Auburn WR Darius Slayton is just another mediocre player added to a depth chart full of mediocre talent.
UDFA Paul Adams will slot into the depth chart at LT behind former Patriot Nate Solder and could see some game time in a rotation setup.
The Giants first selection of defense was at pick 17 when they selected DT Dexter Lawrence. The Clemson product was slated as an early 2nd round player. Again, it looks as though the Giants jumped the gun and took their man too early. His flexibility is poor, meaning he can struggle to bend around opponents. He struggles on pass rushing defense and explosiveness behind the line. None of these are a problem, he can learn them with the Giants. He is a work in progress.
Georgia CB DeAndre Baker was the next player off the board. They filled a position of need with this one, don’t expect Baker to sit in the depth chart for long. He will make the position his own this offseason. Baker is a great NFL cornerback prospect. He grew year-on-year with Georgia and had a stellar senior season. His press technique is elite, route anticipation is excellent, and he is an extreme competitor. He has an incredible football IQ and surely turns into a regular NFL starter.
DE Oshane Ximines is one of hungriest man on the field in college and will translate well into the NFL. This is the best draft pick from the Giants. During his four active years with Old Dominion, he made 32.5 sacks and 176 total tackles. Ximines is going to hunt QBS in the NFC East for years to come. Great pick up.
Julian Love is another player to keep an eye on this offseason. The CB from Notre Dame will push new recruit, Janorius Jenkins, formerly with the Rams, all the way for the starting role on the right side of the field.
Baker, Ximines, and Love saved Gettleman from the worst draft in the history of the NFL. Giants fans are in for another tough season.
