NY Giants Round 5 Pick: Iowa CB Riley Moss

During his five seasons at Iowa, Riley Moss developed into a legitimate talent at the cornerback position. With his overall blend of speed and athleticism, he now looks to make an impact in the NFL. For a Giants team that is in need of help at cornerback, he could be an ideal addition with pick No. 160.

In total, Moss appeared in 43 games during his time at Iowa. While on the field, he was a key playmaker on the defensive side of the ball, recording 123 solo tackles, 158 total tackles, five tackles for loss, 26 defended passes, 11 interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He also added three touchdowns over his collegiate career.

During his final season at Iowa, Moss looked to have polished his game. He finished the year setting career-highs in several categories including total tackles and defended passes. In total, he recorded 31 solo tackles, 47 total tackles, one tackle for loss, 11 defended passes, and one interception.

As Moss heads to the NFL, he has the skill set to move around the defense. He could find himself spending time at both cornerback and safety. With the Giants having a need for depth in both areas, he could quickly become a mainstay within the secondary.

NY Giants Round 5 Pick: Syracuse RB Sean Tucker

With Saquon Barkley and the Giants in the middle of what appears to be the early stages of a contract dispute, the team could look to add depth to the backfield. In the later rounds, Syracuse's Sean Tucker could be the perfect fit at No. 172 for the Giants rushing attack.

Over his three seasons at Syracuse, Tucker developed into their lead option out of the backfield. He finished his collegiate career recording a total of 3,182 rushing yards, and 27 touchdowns. Through the air, he added 64 receptions for 622 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns.

With Tucker's ability to impact both the rushing attack and the passing game, he could fit perfectly into this Giants offense. As they often lean on Barkley, Tucker could also play a similar role. With a physical playstyle and speed to test defenses, he could complement what the Giants have already established within their ground game.
