New York could use some upgrades at both inside, and outside linebacker. They will need some help with Charles Harris, Takk McKinley, and Haason Riddick's stocks continuing to rise. All three might be off the board before the Giants make their selection.
Any of these three linebackers would give the Giants a huge upgrade, and some much needed depth over the middle third of their defense. An area the Giants would like to resolve during this off-season.
New York has to realise that Erick Flowers isn't workig out at left tackle. The Giants would love to see Garret Bolles fall past the Miami Dolphins. Bolles would give their offensive line a serious upgrade. At 36 years old, Eli Manning isn't getting any younger, and providing him better protection is a top need entering the draft.
Cam Robinson didn't help his stock with a subpar combine. Once considered a solid top 20 first round pick, Robinson has fallen out of the first round on most draft boards. If Bolles is off the board, the Giants could take Robinson, but he's now a reach at this point of the draft.
Eli Manning, as stated earlier, is 36 years old, and nearing the end of his career. A big need entering the draft is finding a quarterback worth drafting, and have him spend a season or two developing under Eli Manning
DeShone Kizer is the most NFL ready quarterback in the draft. Should the Cleveland Browns not select him with the 12th pick, it's possible Kizer may drop this far into the first round. Kizer would be a good fit in the Giants' offense.
Another quarterback that could drop this far is Deshuan Watson. Despite big concerns surrounding his accuracy, and throwing mechanics, Watson remains one of the top 32 players in the draft. He could also develop while sitting for a season or two under Eli Manning.
There is a possibility that the top linebackers, and offensive tackles, will be off the board before the Giants make this selection. So, the Giants going after one of ths top rated passers in the draft is hardly out of the question.
If you were the GM of the New York Giants, who would you pick?
