2018 NFL Draft: New York Giants 7-round mock draft 1.0
By Henry Buggy
Fourth-Round (Jets) – Georgia OT Isaiah Wynn
If there has been one theme so far in this mock draft, it’s rebuilding the offensive line. The Giants have already selected a cornerstone left tackle and found a replacement for Richburg. But Big Blue still needs depth along the offensive line.
After losing Richburg and Pugh to season-ending injuries, New York’s offensive line went from bad to terrible.
The Giants can no longer afford to ignore the offensive line, and Gettleman continues to build for 2018 and the future with his selection of Wynn in the fourth-round.
The Bulldogs 6-foot-2, 302-pound prospect started every game at left tackle in his senior season. It’s unknown if Wynn will still be on the board at the start of the fourth-round. NFL draft analysts have wide-ranging opinions regarding Georgia’s offensive tackle.
Walter Football projects Wynn to be a second to third-round selection and writes that he “has drawn comparisons” to Jets starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum due to his “size and skill set.”
Miller, on the hand, lists Wynn as the 10th best guard in the draft and labels him the “biggest question mark” at his position.
The Bulldogs left tackle will have the opportunity to raise his draft stock at the Senior Bowl and the Scouting Combine, but for now Big Blue lands him with their second fourth-round selection.
