GM Dave Gettleman didn't exactly ignore the deficiencies at CB during the offseason. He added lots of able bodies to the depth chart, though none of those bodies at this point show they're deserved of starting in the NFL. We certainly hope that draftees Aaron Robinson (3-71) and Rodarius Williams (6-201) can develop into that status, but their draft positioning in the 3rd and 6th rounds is indicative that achieving a starting slot veers more to hope than expectation, that the scouting team has uncovered diamonds in the chaff.

Then there's Adoree Jackson, who the team added in Free Agency. Jackson played like a RD1 draftee in his first three seasons, by all accounts meeting the expectations that the draft positioning carries. But Jackson suffered a knee injury in 2020, resulting in the Titans rescinding the 5th-year option on his contract and cuttting him. If Jackson can fully recover from that injury and nail down the RCB role opposite James Bradberry, then the Giants won't need to be fishing for a CB in the draft for several more years. Jackson's contract is carefully constructed to reward the former Titan if he succeeds, while allowing the Giants to cut bait if Jackson cannot regain form.

No one will confuse the Giants' pass rush with Paranormal Activity. That is, they're not going to scare anyone (Yeah I'm that guy who needs to explain his jokes). The additions of Azeez Ojulari in RD2 of the 2021 draft and Ryan Anderson (4 career starts) through Free Agency probably will not prevent DT Leonard Williams from again leading the team in sacks.

Further, several of the Giants' mediocre pass-rush contingent (Lorenzo Carter, Ifeadi Odenigbo and Anderson) will be free agents after the season, further diluting an already-weak drink.

We'll definitely keep tabs on the CFB edge prospects throughout the season, but all signs point to pass-rush for at least one of the Giants' RD1 picks in the 2022 draft.

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.
