NFL Draft 2020 Review: New York Giants

The New York Giants are currently in rebuilding mode, which means that they need help at almost every position on the field.  Fortunately, the Giants had ten draft picks in this NFL Draft.  Let’s take a look at who they picked.

Round 1, Pick 4:  Andrew Thomas – T – Georgia (6’5″, 315 lbs).  Thomas will start right away for the Giants at either left or right tackle.

Round 2, Pick 4:  Xavier McKinney – S – Alabama (6’0″, 201 lbs).  McKinney makes plays all over the field on defense at safety and on special teams.  He will be in contention to start at either safety spot.

Round 3, Pick 35:  Matt Peart – T – Connecticut (6’7″, 318 lbs).  Peart also has the versatility to play at either tackle position.  

Round 4, Pick 4:  Darnay Holmes – CB – UCLA (5’10”, 195 lbs).  Holmes will be competing for some playing time at starting cornerback or at nickel cornerback because of an ongoing situation with starting CB Deandre Baker.

Round 5, Pick 4:  Shane Lemieux – G – Oregon (6’4″, 310 lbs).  Lemieux adds depth to the interior of the offensive line.

Round 6, Pick 4:  Cameron Brown – LB – Penn State (6’5″, 233 lbs).  Brown should see time in the linebacker rotation from the outside.

Round 7, Pick 4:  Carter Coughlin – LB – Minnesota (6’3″, 236 lbs).  Coughlin could also see time at the outside linebacker rotation.

Round 7, Pick 24:  T.J. Brunson – LB – South Carolina (6’1″, 230 lbs).  Brunson adds depth to the inside linebacker position.

Round 7, Pick 33:  Chris Williamson – CB – Minnesota (6’0″, 205 lbs).  Williamson will be fighting for playing time at the nickel back and in special teams.

Round 7, Pick 41:  Tae Crowder – LB – Georgia (6’3″, 235 lbs).  Crowder adds even more depth to the inside linebacker position.

Grade:  C+.  Adding help to the offensive line and to the defensive back 7 will help the Giants as they continue to build for the future.
