New York Giants Perfect 2015 Draft
Giants Needs OL, DE, S, LB, TE

New York Giants

  1. 9th Overall – No matter how I look at the draft, I cannot see Brandon Scherff falling to the Giants at number 9 overall.  The player I do see falling is either Amari Cooper or DaVante Parker.  If either of these players are there the Giants may have to stick with the best available strategy especially with two teams taking QBs in the top few picks.  The supposed falls of Shane Ray and Randy Gregory make getting Scherff even tougher.  This isn’t ideal, but it’s not the end of the world either.  If Scherff isn’t there I would prefer a trade back to pick La’El Collins, but it’s very doubtful the Giants do that unless they get overwhelmed.  Since this is the perfect draft the Giants DO get Scherff at 9 after teams trade up to grab WRs in front of them.

  2. 40th Overall – The Giants need to address the DE position with JPP not really living up to his talent and the fact that he’s playing on a one year deal.  I see them going with Preston Smith here, but since this is the perfect draft maybe they can wait one more round.  The Giants get lucky in this draft and grab Eric Kendricks from UCLA to man the middle of their defense.

  3. 74th Overall – Preston Smith is long gone at this point, but there are some DE prospects I like in this range for the Giants.  While I would love to see Smith or Mario Edwards fall to here, they more than likely won’t. The best option for the Giants at this spot would be to grab Kendricks’s teammate at UCLA Owamagbe Odighizuwa.  The fall back would be Trey Flowers from Arkansas who would be a very nice addition to the rotation up front.  For now the pick is UCLA’s Odighizuwa.

  4. 108th Overall – The Giants need to address the safety position if they can and their pick at 108 puts them in line to pick a nice prospect here.  While position isn’t deep there are a few bright spots with some upside.  If the Giants can land James Sample of Louisville in the 4th round it would be a steal.  Too much upside with Sample for him to last this long, but in this draft he does.

  5. 144th Overall – The Giants go back to the Safety position as they go with Derron Smith from Fresno State.  Smith is small at only 5’10” but he played really well for Fresno State and showed excellent coverage skills.  If all goes well with the last two picks the Giants could have their future SS and FS in the 4th and 5th rounds.

  6. 186th Overall – The giants really should come away with a young TE as it looks like the JPP of tight ends never took the next step.  I would love if the Giants could have grabbed Jeff Heuerman or Tyler Kroft earlier, but I think they would get a steal with E.J. Bibbs of Iowa State this late in the draft.

  7. 226th Overall – The Giants need another DE and Clemson’s Corey Crawford could fall down draft boards because of his inconsistent tape.  In this perfect draft the Giants land him with their first pick of the seventh round and it would be a steal.

  8. 245th Overall – The Giants take a chance on the best size/speed player available in Justin Cox.  At worst they could try to make Cox a gunner on the punt team and coach him up as he has the size and flashed some cover skills in college.
