When mock draft period started, the New York Giants have been practically universally projected to go quarterback in Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft. Nevertheless, as the NFL Scouting Blend methods, the winds of modify have begun to blow and the views of a lot of have shifted.
In current times and weeks, we have viewed a lot more and a lot more professionals mock offensive linemen and move rushers to the Giants at No. 6 general. Our good friends more than at Draft Wire, who have been among the the 1st to challenge a thing other than a quarterback to New York, saved that ball rolling on Tuesday with Luke Easterling’s most current mock draft.
With projected trades taken into account, Easterling has the Giants trading down with the Miami Dolphins to No. 13 general and deciding on Oklahoma offensive tackle Cody Ford.

I get the feeling aged-university standard supervisor Dave Gettleman would favor to experience with Eli Manning for the time getting, and choose to fortify the trenches with his early picks in this draft. Soon after transferring back and obtaining some extra picks, the Giants even now get Ford, who would be an fast update at possibly tackle location.
In Round 2, the Giants swapped to the defensive side of the ball, but as soon as all over again addressed the line of scrimmage prior to using a choose obtained from the Dolphins to clear up their cost-free protection dilemma.

Arguably, the most up-to-date mock from Draft Wire is the most fascinating for the Giants to day. It was not really as scattershot as we have viewed earlier, and experienced a weighty emphasis put on parts of require, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
How would you truly feel about this four-round haul, Giants fans? It may be a single of the very best to day.
