Until the Giants added Logan Ryan on September 1, the team had just one proven cornerback on their roster, as Big Blue View summarizes. Sam Beal had opted out for the season, leaving just James Bradberry (the proven one) and, well, 2019 RD6er Corey Ballentine and Grant Haley as the only CBs who had taken NFL snaps. The Giants really need Ballentine to improve; in his rookie season, CB (see what I did there?) took just 194 coverage snaps, allowing a 72% completion rate and 131.2 passer rating into his coverage. Slot man Haley fared worse, allowing an 86% completion rate in his limited snaps. GM Dave Gettleman, BTW, seems in no frame of mind to even entertain letting DeAndre Baker sniff the roster, and may be through with 2019's 30th-overall pick.

Ryan may see the most action at Safety, a position which suffered the loss of rookie 2nd-rounder Xavier McKinney to a foot injury, but HC Joe Judge indicates that the versatile NJ/Rutgers native could line up anywhere in the secondary. Judge still need a few more dike-pluggers, so don't be surprised if the team adds former Giant Prince Amukamara, recently released by the Raiders. Veterans like Ryan (and hopefully Mook) will help tutor Ballantine, Haley, and rookie 4th-rounder Darnay Holmes.


At this point, it's difficult to not see the Giants highly entertaining a CB pick in RD1 of the 2021 Draft. Patrick Surtain has started for Alabama since his freshman year, and has indicated that he will be playing (versus opting-out) when the TIde opens the season on Sept 26. Check out his highlights, in addition to the requisite superb coverage skills, take note of Surtain's vicious tackles.

GIANTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
