Nas Posted January 31, 2020 Share Posted January 31, 2020 Giants First Round Mocks: CBS Sports: Jedrick Wills Jr. OL Alabama • Jr • 6'5" / 320 lbs “New York probably needs two offensive tackles but they have only one pick. They take Wills and can address the other spot later in the draft.” Bleacherreport: 4. New York Giants: Isaiah Simmons, OLB, Clemson phinphanatic.com: Pick #4 New York Giants: Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State After trading away Olivier Vernon, the Giants’ top priority is finding a pass rusher. Unfortunately, the fourth pick in the draft is way too high for the next highest pass rusher in the draft. For a team that was 28th in passing yards allowed (264 yds/game) and tied for 25th in interceptions (10), a player like Okudah would be an immediate upgrade at the cornerback position. At 6’1″, 200 pounds, Okudah has the size and speed to be a #1 corner in the NFL. 247sports.com: 4. New York Giants: Jedrick Wills, OL (Photo: Denon McMillan, 247Sports) The Giants are disappointed they miss out on Chase Young, but securing the best offensive lineman in the draft is a pretty good consolation prize for the G-Men. nbcsports.com: 4. New York Giants: Isaiah Simmons School: Clemson Position: OLB/S The most versatile player in the draft is too good to pass up, especially after his showing in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Simmons played all over the field for Clemson this season. The Giants get an athletic mutant and a defensive cornerstone. --JS walterfootball.com: New York Giants: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia The Giants' defense is an abomination, and they also need help on the offensive line so that Daniel Jones doesn't keep fumbling twice every week. A No. 1 receiver can be obtained as well. I've had Jerry Jeudy slotted here for a while, but the more I think about it, the more I believe general manager Dave Gettleman will address the offensive line. Andrew Thomas has been very impressive, using his great athleticism and length. NFL personnel believe he has tremendous potential. SI.com: 4. New York Giants: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama Right tackle Mike Remmers is about to be a free agent, and left tackle Nate Solder hasn’t lived up to the free-agent deal that he signed in 2018. A two-year starter at right tackle for Alabama, Wills is a dominant run blocker who also improved significantly as a pass blocker in 2019. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
