NY Giants fifth-round pick: Syracuse WR Oronde Gadsden II
The Giants need weapons, weapons, and more weapons. Gadsen, a 6-5, 223-pounder, is a natural tight end but has the versatility to play out wide, which he did a ton of at Syracuse. Gadsen suffered a Lisfranc injury in Syracuse's second game this season and will miss the rest of the year. That could cause him to slip in the draft, which would be some team's gain.
Despite playing on a non-explosive Syracuse offense in 2022, Gadsen hauled in 61 passes for 969 yards and six touchdowns, with a 15.9 yards per catch average. All of Syracuse's offense numbers have fallen with Gadsen out of the lineup, which is no coincidence.
NY Giants sixth-round pick: Washington Zion Tupuola-Fetui
You can never have too many pass rushers. Zion Tupuola-Fetui is a seasoned edge rusher who will have the maturity to play to be a professional football player from the day he gets drafted - 2023 is his sixth college football season.
The Hawaii native stands at 6-4, 254 pounds, and recorded seven sacks in the Covid shortened 2020 season. He played his heart out during Washington's win over USC last weekend and did it for his dad, who passed away last week.
Talk about a guy who is easy to root for. As we previously mentioned, the Giants need pass-rush help with Ojulari constantly battling issues with his health. The UW playmaker could be a solid late-round get for this team.
