3. Edge Dallas Turner - Alabama

If the Giants want to improve their defensive line, they could take Alabama pass-rusher Dallas Turner, who would line up across from former first-round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux. This season, Turner has 26 solo tackles, nine sacks, and two forced fumbles, leading the Crimson Tide to a 12-1 record atop the SEC. Now, Turner and Alabama will have an opportunity at a National Championship in the CFP.

The Giants' front office has had their eyes on several prospects, including a few from Alabama, so it wouldn't be a complete surprise if they decide to prioritize a defensive player from the SEC powerhouse in the first round of the draft. Giants GM Schoen attended the Crimson Tide's 49-21 victory over Kentucky on Nov. 11.
