NY Giants Round 6 pick: Kendre Miller RB TCU
Saquon Barkley’s future with the Giants is still unknown. But regardless of how the situation plays out, the team must add to their backfield. With the addition of TCU’s Kendre Miller, they will add a running back who has all the makings of a legitimate RB1.
During his time at TCU, Miller developed into a force out of the backfield. Over his first two seasons, he took the field in 19 total games and carried the ball a total of 137 times. In total, he recorded 1,011 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns. Through the air, he added 113 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.
Heading into the 2022 season, Miller had the biggest role of his collegiate career. In this expanded role, he dominated. On the way to TCU making a trip to the National Championship Game, Miller carried the ball a total of 224 times. He finished the season recording 1,399 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. Through the air, he added 16 receptions and 116 receiving yards.
Between his size and speed, Miller can give any opposing defense a problem. When looking at the modern running back, he fits the mold. Sliding him into this Giants offense as the backup running back could give this group an elite one-two punch.
NY Giants Draft Round 6 pick: Dee Winters LB TCU
With their second pick of the sixth round, the Giants will be adding yet another member of the 2022 TCU team. This time, it comes with the addition of an explosive linebacker in Dee Winters. During his four seasons at TCU, Winters regularly found ways to make a big play. Over this time, he racked up 246 total tackles, 33.5 tackles for loss, 12.5 total sacks, and three interceptions.
This past season, Winters played the best football of his career. He finished his collegiate career recording 79 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and one interception. Those are some impressive stats.
With his speed, Winters has the ability to move around the defense. He has found success both rushing the passer and dropping into coverage. He could come in and produce for this Giants defense from day one.
