Caleb Farley is not what the Giants need in the first round
McIntyre has the Giants taking Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley 11th overall. Here’s what he wrote:
11. New York Giants – Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech (14)
2020 season stats: N/A (opted out of the season)
2019 season stats: 4 INTs, 1 TD, 20 total tackles
Yes, I would I look long and hard at a QB here. But with the top four off the board, adding another high end CB talent greatly helps the defense. James Bradberry had an all-pro season, but the Giants could never figure out CB2 after the Deandre Baker disaster.
As you can see above, Farley didn’t play in 2020 due to the worldwide pandemic, which is fine. But as much as the Giants’ need a number two cornerback, the bigger need is either a top wide receiver or an edge rusher. I believe that they have to get one of those two in the first round.
If anything I would like to see the Giants grab a corner in the third round or later. I feel like safety Julian Love can continue to help them as a corner and Issac Yiadom wasn’t terrible this season.
