BronxRik Posted May 1, 2022 Share Posted May 1, 2022 Draft class of 2022: Round 1·Pick 5 (5) Kayvon Thibodeaux EDGE Oregon Thibodeaux is a boom-or-bust blue-chip player with impressive physical tools and an unstoppable speed-rush maneuver. The Oregon product displays exceptional balance and body control turning the corner. With outstanding instincts and snap-count anticipation enhancing his speed rush attempts, the electric pass rusher could blossom into a destructive force as a pro. Round 1·Pick 7 (7) Evan Neal OT Alabama CHI>NYG Neal is a super-sized edge blocker with natural skills as a left tackle. The 6-7, 337-pounder is a patient technician with the length to stymie pass rushers off the edge and the power to blow defenders off the ball. The Alabama standout is a powerful run-blocker, but not quite as nasty as some of his counterparts in this class. Round 2·Pick 11 (43) Wan'Dale Robinson WR Kentucky ATL>NYG Neal is a super-sized edge blocker with natural skills as a left tackle. The 6-7, 337-pounder is a patient technician with the length to stymie pass rushers off the edge and the power to blow defenders off the ball. The Alabama standout is a powerful run-blocker, but not quite as nasty as some of his counterparts in this class. Round 3·Pick 17 (81) Cordale Flott CB LSU MIA>NYG As a catch-and-run specialist with outstanding stop-start quickness and burst, Robinson is a natural slot receiver/WR3/returner. Round 4·Pick 7 (112) Daniel Bellinger TE San Diego State CHI>NYG Bellinger has NFL-starter ability, offering reliable ball skills and a proven pedigree in the run game at SDSU. The Giants don't have a tight end on the roster who is expected to run away with the starting job, so consider this a need that has been addressed. Round 4·Pick 9 (114) Dane Belton SAF Iowa ATL>NYG Belton's college production is impressive and he offers the versatility to cover in the slot or in the deep half. While he doesn't have extensive special teams experience, that is likely where he'll need to impress to see the field early on. Round 5·Pick 3 (146) Micah McFadden LB Indiana NYJ>NYG The Giants were one of the worst defenses against the run last year and had a need at linebacker coming into the draft. They waited longer than expected to address that need, but McFadden can come in and instantly help out on obvious run downs as well as on special teams. Round 5·Pick 4 (147) DJ Davidson DT Arizona State The Giants, who had the third-lowest run-stuff rate in 2021, according to Next Gen Stats, address their run defense in consecutive picks. Davidson is disruptive and instinctual against the run, which should win coaches over early in camp. Round 5·Pick 30 (173) Marcus McKethan G North Carolina KC>BAL>NYG Giants scouts sure were fans of North Carolina's rugged offensive line group. They selected a behemoth guard in McKethan who gets to compete with his college teammate and Giants' third-round pick Joshua Ezeudu. Round 6·Pick 3 (182) Darrian Beavers LB Cincinnati The Giants dip into the linebacker well again to address a depth need. Beavers should compete with fellow rookie Micah McFadden for inside reps in Don "Wink" Martindale's 3-4 base. Undrafted rookies: RB Jeremiah Hall, Oklahoma CB Darren Evans, LSU CB Tre Swilling, Georgia Tech Hopefully you are the beginning of greatness, the restoration of Giants Pride, and start Joe Schoen's legacy.
