NY Giants third-round pick: Texas DL T'Vondre Sweat

The Giants may look for Leonard Williams' replacement in April, and T'Vondre Sweat could be just that. The 6-4, 362-pounder is an athletic freak and his size is out of this world. Imagine him in the middle of the d-line making plays for the G-Men.

PFF has Sweat graded as the No. 5 defensive player in all of college football in 2023. He's also graded as the best defensive tackle thanks to his 28 pressures, 25 tackles, 23 hurries, and two sacks. He lives in opposing backfields and apparently can play some tight end.

NY Giants fourth-round pick: Michigan G Zak Zinter

Zak Zinter suffered a broken tibia and fibula in the third quarter of Michigan's win over Ohio State, which could cause his draft stock to fall. Zinter, a two-time first-team All-Big Ten member, was the heart and soul of Michigan's team, evidenced by the reaction of the players and fans when he suffered his devastating injury.

Big Blue must continue adding high-upside bodies to the offensive line room, especially at guard. All current members of the New York Giants offensive line room at OG, outside of maybe Ben Bredeson, have yet to prove to Schoen and the rest of the front office that they should have a future in the Big Apple.
