The Giants need to acquire more picks
The biggest need that the Giants have to take care of in the 2021 NFL Draft is adding a premiere edge rusher.
Right now, if the Giants were to take an edge rusher with the 11th overall pick and pass up other options like offensive lineman Rashawn Slater or even wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, they would be overreaching for a pass rusher. What might make sense is trading down and it looks like that is what they’re thinking of doing.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Giants are thinking about trading back in the first round.
The Giants don’t have a lot of draft picks, so trading down to acquire more picks and putting themselves in a position within the first round to take an edge rusher makes the most sense for them right now.
As much as I would like to see the Giants use the 11th pick on a top receiver, trading down would make more sense and they could still get a receiver later on because of how deep this year’s class is.
