Giants preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft the best they can
Even though the New York Giants had a bye week this past weekend, their front office was hard at work preparing for next season.
Even with COVID-19 running rampant around the country and NFL scouts limited on being able to attend college games, New York Giants’ general manager Dave Gettleman and director of college scouting Chris Pettit attended this past Saturday night’s game between Rutgers and Michigan.
Gettleman and Pettit were treated to a triple-overtime thriller that saw Michigan come up with a 48-42 in a season in which they’ve looked like one of the worst teams in the nation under head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Rutgers on the other hand knocked off Michigan State earlier in the season but unfortunately sit at 1-4 right now.
One player that the Giants would have loved to have seen Michigan defensive tackle Kwity Payne, who is a projected top-15 pick for the 2021 NFL Draft, but he’s been injured for the past two games. Offensive tackle Jalen Mayfield is another player that the Giants could target, but he was also out injured.
With Dalvin Tomlinson and Leonard Williams possibly hitting free agency this coming offseason, Payne might be a guy that the Giants end up drafting.
