Giants need to draft a wide receiver within the first two rounds
If the New York Giants can somehow get one of the top three wide receivers with the 11th overall pick, I would say that they hit a home rum in the first round.
Nate Davis of USA TODAY Sports has the Giants going with University of Alabama wide receiver Devonta Smith in his latest mock draft.
11. New York Giants – DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama: What is it about Broadway’s teams not putting supporting casts around their leading men? QB Daniel Jones could certainly use better protection after getting sacked 45 times in 14 games last season, but giving him an electric wideout like Smith might also make teams think twice about blitzing.
I think it’s going to be very difficult for Smith for fall to 11, but no one ever really knows what will happen on draft night between trades and unexpected moves by teams.
I would prefer the Giants take Jaylen Waddle, but if Smith is available he might be the better pick because he’s more polished as an NFL prospect.
