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

JT Tuimoloau is a flat-out dude and would bring some much-needed pass-rush juice to the Giants and take some pressure and attention off Kayvon Thibodeaux.

Tuimoloau is a game-wrecker who has 13 sacks on 74 pressures in 2.5 seasons as an Ohio State Buckeye. Tuimoloau's fourth quarter against Penn State in 2022 was one for the ages and included this unreal pick-six.

The 6-4, 270-pounder seems to always be in the right place at the right time. The Buckeye is a first-round talent who New York would be lucky to snag in the second round. With Azeez Ojulari consistently battling injuries, it's time for Schoen to find a replacement.

NY Giants second-round pick: LSU DL Maason Smith

New York acquired an extra second-round pick when they traded Leonard Williams to Seattle last week. This pick could be used in a trade up for the No. 1 overall pick (Williams) or maybe a trade for a star wide receiver like Davante Adams or Brandon Aiyuk.

If they still have the pick, they should target a guy like Maason Smith, a physical freak who is a first-round talent. Smith, a 6-6, 315 pounder, has recorded five sacks, eight tackles for loss, and 27 pressures across 18 games at LSU. 

Smith has dealt with injuries but would be a day-one starter next to Dexter Lawrence. NFL teams are built through battles won in the trenches, and stacking young talent is never a bad thing. Smith will certainly be a guy to keep an eye on.
