If the regular season ended today, the NY Giants would be sitting on a bounty in the 2022 NFL Draft, currently owning two of the top-10 picks

The NY Giants currently own the No. 6 and No. 7 overall picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, if the season ended today.

As things currently stand, the sixth pick being the one acquired in last spring’s trade with the Chicago Bears, and the seventh pick being their own.

While obviously, these picks could move up or down, picks No. 6 and No. 7 are very good spots to select future stars, something the Giants need desperately — across the roster.

This draft seems perfect for the NY Giants, being very top-heavy in offensive linemen and edge rushers, two of their biggest needs.

With it being likely that the Giants will have a new general manager to make the selections in this years draft, lets hope they make the right decisions.

Here are six prospects the NY Giants should target with their top 10 picks.

OT Evan Neal, Alabama:

Evan Neal is a 6’7, 351-pound beast of an offensive tackle out of Alabama.

If the NY Giants want to secure both of their tackle spots for the future they have to consider taking Neal to pair with Andrew Thomas.

If the NY Giants were to do this they would have one of the best tackle duos in the NFL for the future.

In 13 games this season with Alabama, Neal has only given up one sack and nine pressures, using his extreme size and power to dominate opposing defenders.

Something that may come as a surprise due to Neal’s size is his athleticism. For an offensive lineman with his frame, Neal is extremely athletic. This is something that the NY Giants need in an offensive lineman, with current right tackle Nate Solder looking like a revolving door at moments.

Neal currently plays left tackle, however, he played right tackle for the majority of his sophomore season. So he can easily slide back over if the NY giants need him to

While there is a good chance that Neal goes before the NY Giants are able to select him, if he can fall to them there are zero reasons not to take him.
