With the first round wrapping up and the NY Giants selecting Deonte Banks, there are still plenty of holes on the roster that need to be filled. The good thing about this is that plenty of talented players are still available on Day 2.

These guys not only play in positions of need for the Giants, but they are likely to be on the board when NY makes its second and third-round selections. Drafting these players would not only fill the aforementioned holes, but the talent they bring to the field could be a real game-changer for the team. With that said, here's a look at five players still there for the taking Joe Schoen should consider:

5. Wisconsin C Joe Tippmann

Following the Banks selection, the Giants still need to focus on the interior offensive line, specifically center. With this in mind, we believe their best option in the second round would be Joe Tippmann out of Wisconsin. He may not have as high of a floor as a guy like John Michael Schmitz, but the value the Giants could get out of drafting Tippmann 57th overall would be insane.

Coming in at 6-6, 313 pounds, Tippmann is an absolute monster on the inside, serving as a true mauler for Wisconsin the last two seasons. This sort of monster is exactly what the Giants need inside blocking for Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.

Tippmann may have some room to improve with his hand placement and footwork, but playing on the inside will help mitigate that once he reaches the pros. Adding a mauler like this in the second round is the most ideal value they could possibly get. The ceiling Tippmann has projects him to potentially be a top center in the league in due time.

It may take some time for this ceiling to come to fruition, but Tippmann would be an immediate upgrade over what the Giants have had at center in the last five years right out of the gate. He would be a strong get for Schoen and Co.
