The New York Giants have struggled since claiming victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. That was the last time the G-Men won a playoff game and that was seven years ago. Making matters worse Big Blue has only had two winning seasons since and have been far out of the playoff picture at seasons end. Big Blue is on their 3rd head coach and 2nd GM since the last time they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and the want is for David Gettleman to hit a home run with the 2019 draft so the Giants can be contenders again. Even though the G-Men have several needs there is a bare minimum David Gettleman needs to get in the 2019 draft.
The Giants offensive live has been in rebuild mode for the last seven years since their last Super Bowl victory. Instead of being a total reclamation project the G-Men have some solid players on the offensive line to build around. Nate Solder and Will Hernandez have solidified the left side of the offensive line while the trade of Olivier Vernon netted right guard Kevin Zeitler. All Gettleman needs to finish the starting offensive line is find a right tackle. Some players who can fill this void could be Jonah Williams of Alabama, Jawaan Taylor of Florida, or Andre Dillard could solve this problem.
Finding the heir apparent to Eli Manning has been a need for the last several seasons as Eli has 2 years left on his contract. Adding more emphasis is trying to eliminate the ghost of Sam Darnold because Darnold was the quarterback the Giants did not pick in favor of Saquon Barkley. Now, this can be solved by drafting Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State, Drew Lock of Missouri, or Daniel Jones of Duke. There could also be a trade for Josh Rosen from the Arizona Cardinals that could address this need.
The Giants franchise is synonymous with pass rushers and right now the Big Blue roster does not have an elite pass rusher. This draft is deep at edge rusher and Gettleman could have 2 shots to find their next defensive playmaker by the 17th pick. Josh Allen of Kentucky, Devin White of LSU, Brian Burns of Florida State, or Rashan Gary of Michigan could fit that bill.
