A little recap of the Giants activities the past two days, via NFL network.
New York Giants
Draft picks: Duke QB Daniel Jones (No. 6 overall); Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence (No. 17 overall); Georgia CB Deandre Baker (No. 30 overall); Old Dominion DE Oshane Ximines (No. 95)
Day 1 grade: B
Day 2 grade: B
Overall grade: B
Draft analysis: I mentioned Jones as a sensible replacement for Eli Manning back in November. The QB possesses a lot of positive traits, and it was time for the Giants to find a successor for Manning. However, many people do not believe Jones is an elite prospect, so the value of the pick will be questioned until he proves otherwise. They received an extra first-rounder in the trade of Odell Beckham to the Browns, and they selected Lawrence, a massive defensive tackle, with the pick. If he shows the ability to push the pocket as well as provide a wall inside, he'll be a major success. GM David Gettleman moved back into Round 1 to pick Baker, the top prospect at a position of need, giving up two Saturday picks (which they had a lot of) in the deal.
Ximines should be a great fit for the Giants. He's agile and strong on the edge, where they needed an upgrade. But the team really needed to improve its offensive line; addressing the position is a must for Day 3.
4th #6 - Julian Love CB
5th #5 - Ryan Connelly LB
I mocked the Giants to take David Long LB in round 4 who's still there, would make a great rotational pass rusher off the edge and special teams player.
Riley Ridley WR is still there, would be a boost to the WR core as well, basically a super physical possession WR and great route runner, just not the most physically gifted.
Dro Samia is also out there, a top ranked OT out of highschool who moved to guard in college, would add great depth and possibly be able to be kicked out to OT after some coaching.
