By defeating the Bengals in Week 12, the Giants showed that an NFC East subdivision team can win versus a "Power-7" opponent. At this point, the Giants have an edge to claim the division playoff spot, which would carry with it the disproportionate penalty of pushing their RD1 2021 draft pick to the 20 range. However, for this mock draft, we're still using power ranking as the criteria for determining selection order, and the Giants have a draft pick better-suited for their W-L record.

Every bi-weekly in-season mock starts with an OL/Andrew Thomas review. Thomas ranks 2nd in the NFL among offensive tackles among both sacks allowed with 6, and total pressures (sacks + QB hits + QB hurries) allowed at 44. The good news is that he's settling in and showing gradual improvement. In Thomas' first five games he allowed 27 pressures; the most recent 5 games that's been pared to 13. Good news, hope for 2021! On the right side, though, well, there's Cameron Fleming. He's not playing much better than Thomas, and will be a free agent anyhoo. Can the team count on rookie Matt Peart and the re-invigorated return of Nate Solder, who took a COVID year off?


If GM Dave Gettleman is feeling better about the future of the OL, he will look at prospects at WR, CB, and EDGE. Edge rusher seems the biggest need, but will there be draft value? The Giants' top producer of sacks and pressures is Leonard Williams with 7 and 38, repectively. Second is Dexter Lawrence with 3 and 19; third in pressures is Dalvin Tomlinson with 15. All three of the leaders are interior linemen. With Lorenzo Carter's Achilles injury, the team's best edge rusher is Kyler Fackrell, who has produced just 3 sacks and 15 pressures. Still, picking in the area of pick #13 doesn't yield good value at the position, unless Gregory Rousseau were to slide.

If Gettleman prioritizes an Edge rusher in RD1, he'd be wise to engineer a trade down. If no trade partner can be found, then several WRs and CBs will complete the value-meets-need equation.

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.
