Could Schoen really take a wide receiver in each of the first two rounds?

NY Giants second-round pick: Iowa State DB TJ Tampa

The Giants need a corner to play alongside Deonte Banks on the outside for the long haul. TJ Tampa could be the perfect fit and a great use of the pick New York acquired for trading Leonard Williams to Seattle.

Tampa ( 6-2, 200 pounds) is a physical corner with great instincts. His build is very similar to Sauce Gardner, as is his play style. Tampa picked off two passes in 2023 and gave up just 240 receiving yards (an average of just 20 per game). He also gave up just 99 yards after the catch in 2023 (an average of just 8.25 yards per game). That is significant given the rate at which New York's secondary members missed tackles in 2023. 

NY Giants third-round pick: Boston College G Christian Mahogany

The Giants are set along the offensive line at left tackle (Andrew Thomas), center (John Michael Schmitz), and right tackle (Evan Neal) to start the 2024 NFL season. The two guard positions are wide open, and it would be prudent to add some veteran leadership to the young offensive line and not continue to throw premium draft assets at the position. Schoen will study the 2024 offensive line class very hard over the next few months.

Christian Mahogany will be a player that intensely intrigues him. Mahogany balled out in 2023, allowing just eight pressures, no hits, and no sacks in 862 offensive snaps. He also threw in a couple of pancakes like these.
