NY Giants second-round pick: Miami S Kamren Kitchens

The jury is still out on young safeties Jason Pinnock and Dane Belton, and given his recent stupid post-game comments, it is safe to assume Joe Schoen will let Xavier McKinney walk this offseason. The Giants need to add to the safeties room. 

Kamren Kitchens, a potential first-round pick, would be a big-time addition. The 6-0, 205-pounder has a ton of experience playing both in the slot and as the deep safety. Thanks to his six-interception season, the Miami Hurricanes star recorded an elite 90.0 PFF grade in 2022. He has continued on the upward trajectory, recording 43 tackles and four interceptions so far in 2023. 

Adding Kitchens to a secondary with Deonte Banks and Cor'Dale Flott would give New York a tremendous young back-four nucleus with a high ceiling. 

NY Giants second-round pick: Kansas State G Cooper Beebe

The Giants seem set at tackle and center, at least entering next season. They could opt to start Ben Bredeson and re-sign Justin Pugh, but I would not be surprised if Schoen went young on the interior. Cooper Beebe, ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr.'s No. 2 ranked interior lineman, would be a good selection with the second-round pick Big Blue got from Seattle for Leonard Williams. 

The 6-4, 335-pounder has versatility the Giants would love. Beebe, a fifth-year senior, started his career at right tackle, then moved to left tackle, right guard, and left guard. In 2021, he played 734 snaps at left tackle, 919 at left guard in 2022, and has predominately played left guard in 2023 but started the first two games at right tackle and left tackle.
