Who will the New York Giants select with their six 2021 NFL Draft picks? Here’s a final guess.
The 2021NFL Draft is just six days away and the New York Giants will currently slated to add new six faces to help end the team’s four-year playoff drought.
With draft day near, here’s a final projection for who the Giants will take 11th overall and with the rest of their 11 picks.
Round 1 (11): Rashawn Slater, OT Northwestern
The Giants filled a lot of holes on their roster in free agency but haven’t yet added the depth needed to take their young offensive line to the next level. Thus, Rashawn Slater simply makes the most sense for them at 11th overall.
Outside of Oregon’s Penei Sewell, who will likely come off the board before the Giants make their pick, Slater is the best offensive lineman in the draft and would fulfill Dave Gettleman’s wish to select an instant impact player round one.
Slater would be ready to start at the left tackle spot aside from last year’s first-round selection Andrew Thomas and help protect Daniel Jones, entering a pivotal year three for New York’s starting quarterback.
