NY Giants 7-Round Mock Draft: Big Blue goes with Zay Flowers at No. 25

NY Giants Round 3 Pick: Olusegun Oluwatimi, C, Michigan
You better believe the Giants will address the interior of the offensive line in the upcoming draft. Schoen and company could take advantage of a deep interior offensive line class and wait until round three to address the big need.
Olusegun Oluwatimi is much better than the typical third-round pick. After three seasons at Virginia, the center transferred to Michigan, where he developed into a scary monster. In 2022, Oluwatimi won the Outland Trophy, awarded to the best interior lineman in college football, the Remington Trophy, awarded to the best center, was named First Team Big Ten, and was a consensus All-American.
It’s impossible to have a better season than that. The center gave up just three sacks in his final three college football seasons, and none came in 2022. At 6-2, 309 pounds, Oluwatimi is a true stud.
PFF gave Oluwatimi an 83.0 run-blocking grade and a 76.7 pass-blocking grade in 2022, which are very good. The center is also very intelligent, having graduated with an Economics degree from Virginia. He would immediately become the best center on the Giants roster.
