With the 2020 NFL Draft fast approaching, all eyes are on the NY Giants and what they’ll do with the fourth-overall selection.
Few General Managers will be under as much scrutiny heading into the 2020 NFL Draft as NY Giants Senior Vice President and General Manager, Dave Gettleman. Although the organizations’ 2019 Draft Class was graded by some league experts as high as an “A-” last year for talent and depth, the team’s overall performance in the NFC East standings this past season did not reciprocate, earning the ire of fans and the expulsion of the entire coaching staff.
In 2020, Gettleman will be drafting players who will join a new football program organized by recently hired Head Coach, Joe Judge and his 20-man coaching staff. Needless to say, expectations are high this fall and potentially job-threatening if they don’t improve on the 4-12 record of the previous staff.
But 2020 is a new year – a new decade – for each NFL team to either build upon their winning ways and look to steer their franchise down a new path toward postseason play.
For the NY Giants, this begins in Paradise, NV on Thursday, April 23 with the fourth-overall pick. An unstoppable pass rusher, a physical offensive tackle, or an impact defender in their secondary would certainly benefit this young roster.
Here are three options that make a ton of sense for the NY Giants with their first pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
