NY Giants second-round pick: Florida State WR Johnny Wilson

The Giants got their franchise quarterback in the first round, so let's get him a new target. Johnny Wilson is a mismatch nightmare and is built like a tight end. Standing at 6-7, 237 pounds, Brian Daboll can put Wilson all over the field and always have the favorable matchup. 

Wilson started his career at Arizona State, but joined Florida State in 2022 and caught 43 balls for 897 yards and five touchdowns. Wilson has 357 yards and three touchdowns this year through six games for undefeated Florida State.

The big man has crazy speed and athleticism. It's hard to stand out physically as a wideout on the field since you have massive linemen teammates, but Wilson does. He is playing alongside star wide receiver and Michigan State transfer Keon Coleman this fall, who would also be a terrific selection for the Giants in April. 

NY Giants third-round pick: Georgia OL Sedrick Van Pran

John Michael Schmitz is entrenched as New York's center of the future, but the Giants need a right and left guard of the future. If New York looks to add a guard in the draft, going back to Georgia, the school that has produced Azeez Ojulari and Andrew Thomas, would be a wise strategy.

Sedrick Van Pran plays center for Georgia, but could slide over to guard in New York. Van Pran is a two-time National Championship winner. This season, PFF ranks Van Pran as the third-best center in the country out of 281.

In practice, Van Pran has been forced to go up against elite defensive linemen like Jordan Davis and Jalen Carter, who he would be forced to play twice a year in New York. In 2021, Van Pran allowed pressures just 2.6 percent of the time, and in 2022, just 2.1 percent of the time. The Giants sorely need a lockdown pass-blocker in the middle of their line.
