The New York Giants have been relatively quiet this offseason, but some of the moves made will have major ramification on how they approach the 2022 NFL Draft. Let’s jump into some later round targets for the new regime.
New general manager Joe Schoen is opting for more of a slow build, shedding salary while also bringing in cheaper veteran options to sure up the offensive line. I don’t want to undersell the fact that both Jon Feliciano and Mark Glowinski are upgrades relative to what the New York Giants trotted out in 2021. While neither player is spectacular, they both provide serviceable play on the interior of the offensive line, something that the team sorely lacked last season. They also brought in tight end Ricky Seals-Jones and quarterback Tyrod Taylor. These two do not move the needle much, but I still love each signing all things being equal.
Veteran defensive back Logan Ryan was cut earlier in the offseason, and Jabrill Peppers went on to sign with the New England Patriots, which makes getting safety help in the draft a necessity. Xavier McKinney is a stud, and Julian Love is solid, but adding a higher upside player opposite McKinney is something the Giants should be actively pursuing. If/when James Bradberry gets moved, a void at cornerback will be left to address. Linebacker is still a big need as well, and another pass rusher certainly wouldn’t hurt.
New York Giants: Late-Round 2022 NFL Draft Targets
The New York Giants hold four picks on the third day of the 2022 NFL Draft: No.112 overall (Round 4), No.147 overall (Round 5), No.173 overall (Round 5), and No.182 overall (Round 6). In this article, I am looking to highlight players that will be available when the New York Giants are on the clock on day three. The first slide will feature four offensive targets, and the next slide will contain four defensive options. Here we go!
