New York Giants Draft Day Needs!


Recommended Posts

New York Giants

Team needs: LB, OL, DT, WR/TE, K

Overall pick/round: 20 (1), 51 (2), 81 (3), 116 (4), 153 (5), 189 (6), 224 (7), 250 (7)


LB: After ridding themselves of Lavar Arrington and Carlos Emmons, they will turn to the draft to find a new face for a position that has long been the staple of the franchise's defensive units. A number of names have been associated with their possible selection at No. 20, but no matter the choice, the Giants need him to be an immediate impact defender.


OL: They have moved David Diehl from guard to left tackle, while inserting Rich Seubert into the left guard position. Besides the fact that this new alignment puts a lot of pressure on the shoulders and footwork of Diehl, it also removed any semblance of depth. They could use multiple choice choices here: one on an experienced college tackle and the other on a versatile blocker that could be groomed at either guard or center.


DT: The Giants have dumped a number of draft choices and free-agent dollars to fortify this spot, but have yet to receive ideal results. In fact, the play of last year's fourth-round pick Barry Cofield was noticeably better than anything they have been able to get out of former first-round pick William Joseph. Another high-energy defender that has a little more size than Cofield would be an ideal choice as they could use a run stuffer off the bench that could eventually replace Fred Robbins in the starting lineup.


WR/TE: With the retirement of Tiki Barber, the Giants ideally would like to use more 3-4 wide receiver schemes, but their current lack of depth would prevent that from happening. In addition, they need to seek out a future replacement for Amani Toomer, who is coming off a season-ending knee injury. Also expect the Giants to use a mid-to-late round choice on a tight end that can give them some productive downs off the bench.


K: The Giants have yet to replace Jay Feely, who joined the Dolphins this offseason. They will likely be one of a handful of teams that will consider taking Colorado kicker Mason Crosby on the first day of the draft.
