Todd McShay and Mel Kiper reveal their first 3-round NY Giants picks
You're not getting sick and tired of NFL Draft talk ahead of the first round, are you? We hope not. The NY Giants will be on the clock with the No. 25 overall pick anhd people can't wait to see who general manager Joe Schoen goes with.
We have seen countless guys linked with the Giants for their potential first-rounder. However, experts and analysts haven't forgotten about the following rounds either. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay dropped their combined three-round mock and they've provided some interesting picks for Big Blue.
Per the two experts, they have the Giants going with Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks in the first round, center John Michael Schmitz in the second round and wide receiver Nathaniel Dell in the third round.
Mel Kiper and Todd McShay think Deonte Banks will be the Giants' first-round pick
This isn't the first time we've seen Banks mentioned as the first-rounder for NY. This team is still in need of a star cornerback opposite of Adoree' Jackson - we all saw how much Big Blue missed James Bradberry last campaign.
With Schmitz, he would also fill a major need for the Giants. After Jon Feliciano signed with the 49ers and Nick Gates inked with the Commanders, Schoen needs a new, reliable starting center to feed Daniel Jones the pigskin. Schmitz could be the answer that NY has been looking for, as the Minnesota hoss has an unreal amount of potential.
Finally in the third round we have Dell, who is coming off a big season with the Houston Cougars. In 2022 for Houston, the 5-10 wideout posted 109 receptions for 1,398 yards and a head-turning 17 touchdowns. Yeah, he would fit right in with the Giants offense.
Cornerback, center and wideout are three of the biggest needs for this team in the NFL Draft. Not many people would complain if McShay and Kiper turn out to be spot on with their predictions for the Giants later this month.
