NY Giants third-round pick: Texas A&M DL McKinnley Jackson

The 6-2, 325-pounder would instantly improve the depth of the Giants defensive line, which Joe Schoen is always looking to do. Jackson has SEC experience, which general managers love in big men.

In each of the last two seasons, Jackson has received 70 or above PFF grades, which indicates starting quality play. In 2023, Jackson split his time lining up over the A-gap and B-gap, recording eight hurries, four sacks, and two hits. 

Behind Dexter Lawrence, the Giants have Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Jordon Riley, and DJ Davidson on the roster at defensive line. Safe to say, even if they re-sign A'Shawn Robinson, they will need to add more help.

NY Giants fourth-round pick: Notre Dame RB Audric Estime

In three seasons at Notre Dame, the Nyack, New York native rushed the ball 373 times for 2,321 yards and 29 touchdowns. In 2023, Estime had 1,341 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns and was given an elite 94.2 grade by PFF for his efforts, the second-best among college running backs.

Estime has all the talents to be a lead running back for an NFL team, but if the Giants opt to re-sign Saquon Barkley, as they should, Estime and Barkley would form a ridiculous backfield duo. Estime would also give the Giants an elite insurance policy for the oft-injured Barkley.
