Our latest New York Giants looks a lot different than it did at the midseason point.
Halfway through the season, the New York Giants sat a woeful 1-7 and were on pace to pick second in the 2021 NFL Draft. Now three quarters through the year, the Giants are 5-7 and lead the NFC East and control their own destiny to win the division.
With that, their draft plans for 2021 look a lot different than they did after a heartbreaking Week 8 loss to Tampa Bay. With Daniel Jones starting to prove he is indeed the franchise quarterback the Giants hoped he’d be, solid play emerging along the offensive line and the defense playing among the best in the NFL.
Still, there are some clear needs the Giants will need to fill next April as they continue to build a perineal playoff contender under Joe Judge.
Here’s an updated look at a seven-round mock draft for the New York Giants three-quarters into the 2020 season.
New York is projected to have six draft picks in 2021 as they traded their fifth-round pick to the New York Jets for Leonard Williams in 2019 and traded their seventh-round selection to the Denver Broncos for cornerback Isaac Yiadom just prior to the start of the 2020 season. They do, however, have a second, sixth-round pick after trading edge rusher Markus Golden to the Arizona Cardinals.
