Dominique Robinson, EDGE, Miami (OH)
Dominique Robinson is slowly gaining traction as a riser on draft boards. Still, he is readily available on day three in most mock drafts out there. In the event that the Giants can snag someone with the traits that Robinson has in his arsenal this late in the draft, they must leap at the opportunity. It comes off as hyperbolic when you say the term “superstar” potential for a day-three prospect, but if you’ve ever watched Robinson play, you know he fits the billing. He is one of the best athletes available, regardless of position, and would be an absolute terror alongside Azeez Ojulari.
D’Marco Jackson, LB, Appalachian State
Appalachian State is not exactly a pro football factory, but D’Marco Jackson is looking to help change that. Jackson is a bit undersized, but he makes up for it with an impeccable motor and natural leadership. The Giants have more talent than given credit for, but as far as linebacker goes, I legitimately believe Jackson would be the most talented on the roster immediately. His stature will keep him from reaching the top of the position, but he has the chops and makeup to be a ten-year starter in the NFL.
Bryan Cook, Safety, Cincinnati
The Giants parted ways with veteran Logan Ryan and lost Jabrill Peppers to the New England Patriots. This leaves Xavier McKinney and Julian Love as the starters at safety. McKinney has star-in-the-making potential, and Love is serviceable, but not only would the Giants benefit from more depth, they would love to bring competition to the group. Cook was a stalwart at safety during his time with Cincinnati. He has a bit lower of a ceiling, but makes up for it with such a stable floor. Take Cook with confidence.
Mario Goodrich, CB, Clemson
James Bradberry has not been moved as of this post, but the rumors are have been flying around for so long that it just feels like a matter of time. Even on the slim chance that Bradberry returns, it is time for the Giants to invest in more youth at cornerback. Aaron Robinson is a pick I loved last season, but it should not stop there. Mario Goodrich can fill in for Bradberry, or learn behind the veteran for a year. With Adoree’ Jackson still locked in on the outside, I look for general manager Joe Schoen to add a few bodies at the position.
