The GMens front office trades down out of their #5 selection and end up with 12 picks in the New York Giants Mock Draft 2022. If the draft can fall like this for the Giants the fanbase would be ecstatic.
New York Giants Mock Draft PICKS
No picks this round
6/173 – Houston LB David Anenih is another guy that can bring it from the edge and should flourish in a classic 3-4 defense. He will need some time but his first step is there and he has more than one move to bring to the game.
6/182 – San Diego State P Matt Araiza is the upgrade the team tried to get with Jamie Gillan in free agency. Araiza’s leg is incredible and solves a big-time problem for the Giants’ special teams.
5/147 – Kentucky OC/OG Luke Fortner could be the long-term answer at center and backup all three interior positions until he develops his game that far.
4/111 – Penn State LB Jesse Luketa is a beast as an early-down hybrid LB at 6’3″, 251 lbs. A great fit for a defense starved for playmakers.
4/112 – Cincinnati WR Alec Pierce should be able to slide right into a talented WR room having the speed to stretch a defense and the size to make an excellent red-zone target as well.
4/117 – Alabama RB Brian Robinson is a downhill, north-south runner who will consistently get you what you need in those tough, short-yardage situations. He would be a perfect compliment to Saquon Barkley.
3/67 – Ohio State TE Jeremy Ruckert is a 5-tool TE. He can block next to the tackle, get to the 2nd level, beat coverage up the seam, and at 6’5″, 254 lbs is a mismatch in coverage with a huge catch radius. Ruckert will step right into the TE1 role for years to come.
3/81 – Fayetteville State CB Josh Williams – A rare combination of size and speed while still maintaining the hips to stay locked in a guys hip pocket the 6’2″, 197 lb CB will need time to adjust but has all of the tools to play and possibly dominate on the outside.
2/35 – Penn State Safety Jaquan Brisker solves a lot of problems for the Giants defensively. He is a consummate Free Safety, more CB than LB but still a sure tackler. At a position of need, this is a big-time upgrade for the Giants.
2/36 – Tulsa OG Tyler Smith will be an upgrade at either guard spot. Smith is 6’5″, 324 lbs, has NFL strength, is aggressive, and enjoys filling the “mauler” role. He should start in his rookie season by getting better by the game.
1/7 – The Giants hang with their 7th pick and tab Oregon DE Kayvon Thibodeaux who can set the edge, has excellent hand-counter moves, shows excellent IQ,, heavy hands, and has a non-stop motor. The Giants D has needed the effect this guy brings for years.
1/10 – Northern OT Trevor Penning brings his 6’7″, 327 lb frame to New York where the Giants will plug him in at RT sliding recently signed insurance policy Nate Solder into swing tackle duty, also a key need. Penning is huge but moves like a much smaller man. Most importantly he brings a VERY nasty attitude.
