NY Giants: Evaluating impact of rookie class | Grades
NY Giants 2020 Draft Class
Overall, this looks like a promising draft class for the NY Giants. The team got stronger at linebacker, tackle, and in the secondary this season due to their rookie contributions. Their improved play was one of the key questions surrounding the team entering the season and the team has appeared to have greatly improved in these spots.
Andrew Thomas looks like the real deal at left tackle and the team should feel good about him on the left side for years to come.
Xavier McKinney had a small-but-intriguing rookie season who is going to be a premier player for this defense for the next several years.
Matt Peart is raw and will need to keep improving, but he looks like a starting tackle at some point in the next few years.
Darnay Holmes filled a huge void in the slot and will lock down the inside of the Giants’ secondary for next year.
Shane Lemieux appears to be a good player to work with, it’s always great to build up players who play with an attitude you can’t teach.
Behind these guys, several more players will serve as depth and be part of the underlying foundation of the NY Giants for hopefully a long time. Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman seem to have a real sense of what type of players and people they’re looking for in NFL draft prospects.
