NY Giants second-round pick: Ohio State EDGE J.T. Tuimoloau

The Giants pass-rush depth has been brutal. Outside of Kayvon Thibodeaux, who has four sacks through five games, New York has very little in terms of edge rushers. Azeez Ojulari can never stay healthy, which means New York can't rely upon him any more.

Tuimoloau, the second-ranked edge on Kiper's big board, would fill the void immediately. Through 2.5 seasons at Ohio State, Tuimoloau has 10 sacks and lives in the opposition's backfield. Through five games this season, he has generated 15 pressures. Only one New York Giant, Dexter Lawrence, has generated more than 15 pressures for Big Blue. The Draft Network's prospect profile has Tuimoloau projected as a Pro Bowl caliber EDGE from Day 1.

NY Giants third-round pick: Washington WR Jalen McMillan

Jalen McMillan, one of the stars of college football's best offense, the Washington Huskies, would bring elite speed to New York. McMillan, a 6-1,192-pounder, has a very similar game style to Jalin Hyatt and can take the top off a defense, something Big Blue has been unable to do since Odell Beckham Jr. was traded.

McMillan also excels in contested catch situations, which, combined with his speed, makes him a three-down wide receiver. Later in the Boise State game, McMillan scored a 19-yard rushing touchdown on a direct snap, displaying his chess-piece ability.

The 2024 wide receiver class is loaded, and McMillan could be drafted as early as Round 1. With the quality of this class, Joe Schoen can get an impact wideout on Day 2.
