NY Giants second-round pick: DE Jack Sawyer, Ohio State
The Giants have zero pass-rush depth on the current roster behind Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari, and there are questions to be asked about them. Sawyer, the No. 1 rated recruit in the 2021 ESPN 300, is a 6-4, 265-pounder who excels in both run and pass defense.
Sawyer has not quite had the college career expected of the No. 1 overall recruit, but he has impressed in 2023. PFF has given Sawyer an 81.7 overall defensive grade and an elite 90.2 pass-rushing grade. New York has just two sacks through three games and could desperately use another blue-chip pass-rush prospect.
NY Giants third-round pick: RB Blake Corum, Michigan
Will Saquon Barkley be the Giants running back in 2024? That is going to be a major topic of conversation this offseason. The Giants and Barkley could not agree on a long-term extension this past offseason, and it's uncertain how Schoen's regime views Barkley's value.
Regardless, New York could use a complimentary backup, given his injury history. Schoen was part of the Buffalo front office that drafted both Devin Singletary (2019) and Zack Moss (2020) in the third round of the draft, and could do something similar in 2023.
Blake Corum was a monster in 2022, winning the Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year award and was unanimously named All-American. Corum had 1,463 and 18 touchdowns in 2022 and was a Heisman frontrunner until he suffered a knee injury in late November.
