Giants need more sacks in 2021
The New York Giants can go in so many different directions when it comes to who they can take with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Big Blue could take a tight end in Kyle Pitts, a wide receiver like Jaylen Waddle, an edge rusher or even an offensive lineman.
In their latest mock draft, Pro Football Focus have the Giants taking University of Michigan edge rusher Kwity Paye. Here’s what they wrote:
The Giants struck gold last offseason with the acquisition of James Bradberry in free agency, and there was some temptation to take another corner here to fortify a strength. However, given the value proposition of elite edge players taken high in the draft relative to what they are paid as veterans at the top end, Paye is an athletic bet the Giants need to make here to secure their first elite edge defender in quite some time.
With all three of the top receivers off the board as well as Pitts, taking an edge rusher like Paye would make sense for the Giants who haven’t had a great pass rusher in what seems like an eternity.
