Every year, we see NFL studs and sometimes superstars selected well past the first or even second round of the draft. While the NY Giants have not had much luck with these rounds in recent seasons, this is a whole new regime with a different drafting strategy that could prove to be fruitful.

If the Giants could manage to add a top-tier player to their roster in the mid-to-late rounds, it would be a serious game-changer for both sides of the ball. We all know how close this team is to being great, so adding a star at minimal cost would just be incredible.

These seven players all could very well fit the criteria of being a star selected in rounds 3-7. While nothing is guaranteed in the draft, these seven guys stick out just a little more than most people projected to go in their range.

7. DL Dante Stills, West Virginia

If the NY Giants are looking to add some serious depth to their defensive line, they should look no further than West Virginia's own Dante Stills, who is one of the most versatile defensive linemen in the country. This kid has game.

Throughout his college career, Stills has played 1,223 snaps on the interior, 820 snaps lined up over the tackle, and even 330 snaps played outside of the tackle. This sort of versatility to play and succeed at all positions on the defensive line is not common and is something the Giants may want to add to their roster.

Stills is also one of the better defensive line prospects from an athletic standpoint, running a 4.85 40-yard dash, showcasing a 9'5 broad jump and running a 7.38 three-cone drill, all of which rank third amongst players at his position.

There may be things for Stills to work on from a technique and pass-rushing standpoint, but this sort of versatility and athleticism is a recipe for success with a defensive lineman, one the Giants may want to pick up to help mold their core in the trenches.
