Some of these picks don’t make sense
Chad Reuter of NFL.com has posted his four round NFL mock draft and he has some interesting picks for the New York Giants.
Reuter has the Giants getting a steal with the 11th overall pick as he has them selecting Alabama wide receiver Devonta Smith.
Smith is exactly the sort of playmaker that GM Dave Gettleman says he wants to support former first-round pick Daniel Jones. His foot quickness will help him win off the line and he plays much bigger than his 170 pounds would indicate.
Reuter has Ja’marr Chase being taken in the top-five and Jaylen Waddle slipping all the way to 15 to the Washington Football Team after they traded up from 19.
The fact of the matter is that no one knows what will happen on draft night with many teams likely willing to move to grab a quarterback.
For the Giants’ second round pick, Reuter has them taking NC State defensive tackle Alim mcNeil.
McNeil would be a good replacement for Dalvin Tomlinson if the Giants don’t re-sign him because he’s a run-stuffing nose tackle that would fit into a 3-4.
Reuter’s third round pick for the Giants is very interesting because he has them taking North Carolina running back Michael Carter. He rushed for 1,245 yards and nine touchdowns with an average of eight yards per carry in 2020.
This really seems like a waste of a third round pick with so many other pressing needs. I would rather see New York use their third round pick on an edge rusher or even an offensive lineman. They don’t need to take a running back so high.
Reuter does have the Giants using their fourth round pick on Miami edge rusher Quincy Roche. He recorded 27 tackles, two forced fumbles and 4.5 sacks this past season for the Hurricanes.
