Make the Case: What might Giants do at No. 70?


"Make the Case" is officially back on for the 2024 NFL Draft.

In this series, we look at projections provided by analysts and then ask you, the fans, to weigh in on what the Giants should do in the draft.

For the first time this offseason, we're going to take a look into what the experts think the Giants might do in the third round of this year's draft with the No. 70 overall pick.

Let's break down what The Athletic's Nick Baumgardner and ESPN's Matt Miller think the Giants might do with their third-round pick.

Pick: Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 193

2023 Stats: 8 games, 41 receptions for 699 yards and 7 touchdowns

Accolades: First-Team All-MAC (2022), Third-Team All-ACC (2023)

Analysis provided by's Lance Zierlein - "All-day vertical target with long, linear frame and impressive build-up speed to win the footrace. Walker is a tale of two receivers. He's a long strider who will excel running go routes, posts, corners and over routes. When he's allowed to maintain play speed and keep his feet moving, he's fine. When he's asked to get in and out of breaks or make tighter turns, his lack of short-area footwork and route acumen make him substantially easier to cover. Walker showed drastic improvement making the combat catch, but the jury is still out on whether he's physical enough to do it as a pro. He's a Day 2 field-stretcher for West Coast offenses looking to create explosive opportunities in the passing game."

Pick: Christian Haynes, IOL, UConn

Height: 6-foot-3 | Weight: 317

2023 Stats: 12 games, 438 pass block snaps, 1 sack allowed, 12 total pressures allowed

Accolades: Third-Team All-American (2022, 2023)

Analysis from's Lance Zierlein: "Four-year starter and team captain who is sturdy at the point of attack. Haynes plays with football intelligence and sees every snap as a mandate to move opponents and finish blocks. His draft slotting could be affected by a lack of length and being limited to one position, but his determined playing style counters those factors. He's not overly rangy but wipes out targets on pulling blocks and is capable in space, and in pass protection. The hand usage can get sloppy, allowing opponents to slip away from him, and he has a tendency to do too much grabbing. All things considered, he might outplay his draft slotting and become a solid NFL starter."
