Once the NY Giants got the Daniel Jones contract situation figured out, all the attention was turned to the 2023 NFL Draft. It's safe to say that general manager Joe Schoen and Co. absolutely nailed it. If you look at feedback from most of the talking heads, it'll be hard to find a draft grade below a B and rightfully so.

The Giants brass was able to address every need the team had and if some of these picks pan out the way we hope, the Giants could be set up very well for the upcoming season and beyond. Now, it's time to look at just how good these draft picks are, as we're ranking each pick from worst to best:

7. DT Jordon Riley

In a draft that is as good on paper as the Giants, it's tough to put someone in the last position, but it does have to be done. A defensive tackle out of Oregon, Jordon Riley unfortunately holds that position. Riley bounced around during his college career starting at the University of North Carolina, going to junior college, then Nebraska and finally finding a home at Oregon for his last season.

It wasn't until his final year at Oregon that he got to play consistently, Fortunately, he was able to make the most of his opportunity collecting 21 total tackles (1.5 for loss). Riley turned plenty of heads in the Pac-12.

Nonetheless, the in-game inexperience is there. It'll be interesting to see how he can fit into Wink Martindale's 3-4 system as a tackle. He doesn't necessarily have the experience or speed to fit to play as an end and it's already a crowded room for defensive tackles. His ability is limited in that sense, so Riley wil really have to rely on his skill to make the roster.
