NY Giants 7-round Mock Draft: Daniel Jones gets his WR1 in the first round

NY Giants Round 7 Pick: Henry Bainivalu OG Washington
In recent seasons, the Giants have made an effort to address the interior of the offensive line. Both Joshua Ezeudu and Marcus McKethan were sidelined during their rookie season in 2022 but will be back in the fold this season and competing for starting jobs. As previously noted, the Giants lost both Gates and Feliciano. The team could still look to add depth and Washington's Henry Bainivalu would bring just that at No. 240 overall.
While at Washington, Bainivalu served as the team's starting right guard. During the 2022 season, he took the field for 545 passing downs. In total, he allowed just one sack, four quarterback hits, and eight total pressures. Given that he can adapt to the NFL game, he could develop into a strong option on the interior.
NY Giants Round 7 Pick: Malik Cunningham QB Louisville
Outside of Jones and Tyrod Taylor, the Giants currently have no other quarterbacks on the roster. Louisville's Malik Cunningham could be the ideal addition to this group. While at Lousiville, Cunningham regularly used both his arms and leg to make plays. Over five seasons, he threw for 9,660 yards, 70 touchdowns, and 29 interceptions. On the ground, he added 3,179 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns.
In a Giants offense that relies so heavily on the run, Cunningham could quickly learn and develop in the offense. He could also give the team much-needed depth at the position. We like him at No. 243 overall here.
NY Giants Round 7 Pick: Cameron Young DT Mississippi State
With Williams's future with the Giants still unclear, the team could be looking to add another young face to the defensive front. Mississippi State's Cameron Young is a force at defensive tackle and could develop into a solid rotational player. If he's on the board at No. 254 overall, he'd be a great get.
While at Mississippi State, Young appeared in 34 total games. He recorded 110 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, and two sacks during this time. If the team is looking to solidify the defensive front, Young would make a ton of sense in this spot.
