2018 NFL Draft: Updated top 25 targets for New York Giants
By Henry Buggy
#6 – Texas OT Connor Williams
If the Giants are looking to improve their pass protection in 2018 then Williams is the prospect to take. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound junior has already declared for the draft and is expected to be one of the top offensive tackles off the board, if not the first.
Despite missing seven games this season, Miller still lists Williams as the best offensive tackle prospect in this year’s class. Most draft analysts project the Longhorns left tackle to be taken in the first-round, and Kiper has him listed as the 19th overall prospect in the 2018 draft.
“He’s a pure left tackle prospect with great feet and balance, and he just doesn’t get beaten in pass protection,” Kiper wrote on his Big Board rankings last month.
While it may be a reach for Big Blue to use the No. 2 overall pick on Williams, the Giants are likely to receive plenty of calls for their high draft selection. After months of evaluation, Gettleman will have to decide what he believes is in the best long-term interest of the franchise.
