Giants really need an edge rusher
We’re almost two weeks away from the 2021 NFL Draft and you can feel the anticipation in the air.
Like all of my mock drafts, I used Pro Football Focus’ NFL draft simulator and made the following picks based on the best player that was available.
1st Round (11) – Penn State LB Micah Parsons
I could have taken Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell here, but I feel like the Giants need a linebacker like Parsons more.
2nd Round (43) – Miami EDGE Jaelen Phillips
The Giants can get their edge rusher in the second round in Phillips. He wouldn’t be a bad option at all.
3rd Round (75) – Tennessee WR Josh Palmer
Even though PFF didn’t give me a good grade for drafting Palmer, I think taking him in the third or fourth round would be great.
4th Round (116) – Louisiana Tech DL Milton Williams
The Giants need to grab a young defensive lineman to replace Dalvin Tomlinson. Williams might be a good option. He had 20 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 2020 for Tech.
6th Round (197) – Michigan HB Chris Evans
I actually took Evans in my last mock and he fell in my lap again.
6th Round (202) – Notre Dame T Robert Hainsey
It wouldn’t be bad for the Giants to grab an offensive lineman for some depth.
