In the primary mock draft revealed by NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly, the New York Giants chosen Alabama extensive receiver Jaylen Waddle at No. 11 total.
However, Casserly has had a change of coronary heart and in his second mock draft of the yr has the Giants passing on Waddle in favor of Michigan edge rusher Kwity Paye. Waddle then goes No. 12 total to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Giants, who desperately want an out of doors go rusher, make the most of Paye being accessible right here.
Although Paye suits a necessity for the Giants, will he play sufficient snaps to warrant the eleventh total choice? If the Giants view him as a top-end edge rusher however not a three-down lineman, the worth merely isn’t there.
General supervisor Dave Gettleman may commerce down for the primary time in his profession after which try to draft Paye, however nothing is assured at that time. However, there are a number of different edge rushers who seem like falling late into the primary spherical and even slipping into Round 2.
Several current mock drafts have the Giants touchdown Miami edge rusher Gregory Rousseau in Round 2, which might be optimum. It would permit them so as to add a large receiver or offensive lineman at No. 11 after which remedy their edge downside at No. 42, however once more, there’s no assure the draft will play out that means.
With Paye, it’s tough as a result of many draft analysts imagine he’ll battle towards the run within the NFL. If that seems to be true, he turns into a large one-dimensional funding at No. 11 and the Giants merely can’t play that hand with so many roles on the road.
