I don’t think the Giants will take a defensive player at 11
The New York Giants will have plenty of options at 11 with so many teams clamoring for quarterbacks in the top-10.
Former NFL general manager Mike Tannenbaum has released a mock draft on ESPN.com and he has the Giants taking University of Georgia linebacker Azeez Ojulari.
The Giants attacked cornerback and wide receiver in free agency, so pass-rusher is their No. 1 need. And coach Joe Judge seeks versatile guys off the edge, which is why I’m going with Ojulari here. He’s tough and can get home on the QB, but he’s also an outside linebacker who can drop into coverage. Kwity Paye (Michigan), for example, doesn’t do that.
One thing to know: Ojulari was defensive MVP of the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl — his final game with Georgia — with three sacks.
Tannenbaum has Florida tight end Kyle Pitts and Alabama wide receiver Devonta Smith falling past the Giants. I can’t imagine them bypassing either player for Ojulari. This is a very offensive heavy draft and both of those guys are better options then Ojulari at 11.
