Admittedly, there's a case to be made for any of the top three guys to get the No. 1 spot in the draft pick power rankings. But, to me, Schmitz is the biggest win of the Giants' draft. Firstly, the kid was an absolute steal.

The No. 1 ranked center in the draft falling all the way to pick No. 57 is almost unheard of. Not too much has been revealed of the celebration from the Giants higher ups with this pick, but you have to figure it was a big one.

Schmitz didn't get any consistent playing time at Minnesota until he was a sophomore, but he proved to be elite from the beginning. In his entire career at Minnesota, he allowed just four QB hits and only two sacks. He's also very quick for a guy who is 6-4, 310 pounds.

Not only does he have the skills, but also the intelligence. He can call every play from the line and has even been working with Jones on a dead snap count. If the duo can work out the kinks during camp, they'll be fun to watch during the year. The Giants found themselves in a brutal spot at center once Nick Gates departed for the Commanders, but they couldn't have found a better answer than Schmitz.
