Following Monday night’s NY Giants’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with New York 3-7, it is fair to turn some attention to the 2022 NFL Draft 

The NY Giants emerged from the bye with flickering playoff hopes, but after being systematically dismantled by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30-10 on Monday night, it’s difficult to envision this team mounting any sort of serious charge towards the postseason.

Now 3-7, amid middling quarterback play, a non-existent pass-rush and an offensive line that has allowed nearly relentless pressure for much of the season, many of the Giants‘ issues won’t be solved over the final seven games of this season.

Likewise, given limited cap space, there might not be much help incoming via free agency.

That means, mining blue-chip talent in next spring’s NFL Draft could prove critical to the NY Giants  taking the next step in what has become an ongoing rebuild — despite last offseason’s spending spree.

Thanks to the draft-night trade with the Chicago Bears, there’s now a very legitimate chance the NY Giants will hold two selections in the top-15 of next spring’s NFL Draft, and perhaps even two picks inside the top-10.

Following Monday night’s loss to the Buccaneers, here’s a look at where the NY Giants would be picking in the NFL Draft if the season ended today:

Round 1

No. 5 overall

No. 7 overall (via Chicago Bears)

Round 2

No. 39 overall

Round 3

No. 70 overall

No. 72 overall (via Chicago Bears)

Round 4

No. 109 overall

Round 5

No. 149 overall

No. 167 overall (via Kansas City Chiefs)

Round 6

No. 185 overall

Round 7

No. 226 overall
