As excited as NY Giants fans are for the additons of Parris Campbell and Darren Waller for the aerial attack, a stud wide receiver is still needed for Daniel Jones. That's why Quentin Johnston, Jordan Addison, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and others have been mentioned as first-round targets.

CBS' Jared Dubin has other ideas, though, as he thinks the Giants will be focusing on defense for the first round. So, maybe a standout WR is taken in the second round by Joe Schoen and Co. right? Nope, CBS also has the Giants focusing on defense - again.

In their latest mock draft, CBS has Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks going No. 25 overall to the G-Men, while Auburn EDGE Derick Hall will hear his name called by Big Blue at No. 57 overall. Really?

Deonte Banks in the first round makes sense for the Giants

We like Dubin's pick of Banks in the first round. As bad as we'd like to see Johnston, Addison or Smith-Njigba make their way to East Rutherford, there's a good chance they'll be the off the board at No. 25. You don't want to see Schoen reach for someone at that spot either.

With Adoree' Jackson locked in as a starting corner, another playmaker is needed for Wink Martindale's secondary there. However, it's the second round that we disagree with in a big way. An EDGE isn't a priority for this squad, with Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari manning those starting spots.

Yes, Ojulari has battled injuries, but outside 'backer Jihad Ward was just brought back on a one-year deal. In the second round, we'd like to see the Giants go with either a wideout or an interior offensive lineman. Hey, this team still needs help at both center and guard.

In the third round, Dubin does have the Giants going with SMU WR Rashee Rice, which would be a solid get. However, if a WR higher on the organization's board is still available when the first round arrives on April 27, they shouldn't hesitate in picking him over Banks instead.
