Round 2, Pick 57: C John Michael-Schmitz, B+

Similar to Banks, John Michael-Schmitz has had an up-and-down rookie season. However, for the first time in a while, it finally seems like the Giants have the future of their center position locked down. The Giants have struggled to find a consistent center since Weston Richburg left, and now they finally found his replacement.

Over seven games, Schmitz has allowed 14 pressures and one sack, which honestly isn't too bad for a second-round center. Alongside this, Schmitz has had countless amounts of great moments as a run blocker, which is something the Giants really needed for Saquon Barkley.

Hopefully, Schmitz continues to play well as the season goes and and moving forward in general. If Joe Schoen can manage to lock down both corner and center in back-to-back picks, it would be huge for the future of this team. This level of drafting is something we never really saw out of Dave Gettleman.

Round 3, Pick 73: WR Jalin Hyatt, C+

We'd love to give Jalin Hyatt a higher grade because we know the talent is there. However, for one reason or another, it hasn't been fully displayed this season so it's tough for us to go higher than this. Regardless, we're very confident and excited for Hyatt's future with the Giants. He's already an incredible deep threat, so if he can just become a better all-around pass-catcher, there's no telling how good Hyatt could become.

On the season, Hyatt has caught 11 passes for 214 yards and zero touchdowns. Again, there have been flashes of excellence, but for a few reasons, Hyatt hasn't been able to put it all together. First, and most importantly, the Giants' QB play has been incredibly disappointing and it's played a big role in Hyatt's lack of production.

Not only has Daniel Jones disappointed, but Tyrod Taylor, who actually fed him the ball a good bit, has been on IR with a rib injury and we all know Tommy DeVito isn't very good. This, alongside the lack of aggression in playcalling all season, has made it very difficult for Hyatt to get anything going consistently. Despite this, we still think Hyatt has a very bright future with the Giants.
