As the dust settles on the 2024 NFL Draft, the New York Giants are hoping they’ve done enough to accelerate their rebuild and move forward into a better future with their selections. History tells us that the Giants will hit on some of their picks, and inevitably some of their selections will be less than stellar. Still, that doesn’t mean Joe Schoen and company can’t continue to build off of their potential, and cultivate their roster around certain players.

The team decided against drafting a quarterback, and will instead enter the season with Daniel Jones leading the charge. However, they’ve strengthened the team around the most important position in the sport, and their draftees are looking to turn New York into a destination franchise once again.

As we move forward following the six additions the Giants made during the 2024 NFL Draft, it’s easy to see where they fit into their plans for next season and beyond. Here are the rankings of all the team’s draft picks from April, from worst to best:

6. UCLA LB Darius Muasau in the sixth round

While Darius Muasau may be the least exciting of the Giants draft selections, it mostly has to do with him being their final pick of the 2024 NFL Draft, and coming in at a position where New York already has solid talent. 

Throughout his rookie season, Muasau will be looked at as more of a depth guy than anything, with Bobby Okereke, Micah McFadden and Isaiah Simmons all returning for another season. The team’s linebacker corps is in the best shape they’ve been in over the last couple of seasons, if not longer, and perhaps Muasau can add to that.

While playing with UCLA, Muasau started 26 games, and recorded 166 total tackles, three interceptions, 10 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over two seasons. Additionally, he started his collegiate career with the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, where he was named to the First-Team All-Mountain West both seasons he was with the program. Does Muasau have potential? He’s proven that with UCLA and Hawaii both, but he’s not more exciting than any of the other Giants’ selections.
