The New York Giants may have their decide of a number of high quality gamers after they’re placed on the clock at No. 11 total within the 2021 NFL draft. They will possible be capable to select between a number of large receivers, edge rushers, offensive linemen and perhaps even a cornerback or two.
So, which method are the Giants and basic supervisor Dave Gettleman leaning? Well, that is determined by who you ask as some firmly consider Gettleman is “enamored” with Alabama wideout DeVonta Smith.
However, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY studies that the Giants are literally studying in direction of edge rusher over large receiver.
There’s probability that when the Giants make their first decide April 29 within the 2021 NFL Draft that one among Alabama’s two explosive receivers — DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle — will nonetheless be on the board. There’s even an out of doors probability that each of them will nonetheless be there at 11.
But even when that occurs, the Giants may nonetheless take an edge rusher as a substitute.
Nothing is ready in stone with two weeks to go till the draft in Cleveland, however a number of NFL sources informed SNY they sensed that the Giants had been leaning in direction of taking a go rusher within the first spherical of the draft. Whether they actually would go on Smith and Waddle isn’t fully clear, however one supply mentioned the Giants have “done a lot of work on” the highest edge rushers who may go in Round 1.
It’s already recognized that Penn State edge rusher Jayson Oweh “has a lot of fans” contained in the Giants, whereas the crew has additionally accomplished in depth work on Michigan’s Kwity Paye and Georgia’s Azeez Ojulari. But do any of them warrant the No. 11 total choice?
Value, worth, worth… You’ve heard these of us at Giants Wire use that phrase repeatedly in current weeks because it pertains to the sting prospects, and it’ll stay true main as much as the draft.
If New York believes any of those guys are three-down gamers, they need to run their choice card as much as the sales space as shortly as doable. If not, they both go on what’s there at No. 11 or — you guessed it — Gettleman has to commerce again for the primary time in his profession as GM.
