Giants made a smart move here
It was looking like the New York Giants were going to land Alabama wide receiver Devonta Smith, but then the Philadelphia Eagles traded up ahead of the them and selected him at 10.
With their not being much value at 11, the Giants traded down and swapped first round picks with the Chicago Bears. In return they also landed a 20222 first round pick, 5th round pick this year and a 4th round pick next year.
The Bears ended up using the 11th overall pick on Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields.
This of course is the first time that Giants’ general manager Dave Gettleman has ever traded down. It now looks like the Giants will wait a little longer and likely take an edge rusher at 20, which makes the most sense.
The question now is, who will the Giants take? Kwity Paye, Azeez Ojulari or even Jayson Oweh? I got a feeling it will be Paye unless he ends up being taken before they’re on the clock.
Below are the Giants’ updated picks for the 2021 NFL Draft.
