What will Giants do on Day 2? Experts weigh in


It was exciting start to the 2023 NFL Draft for the Giants after they moved up a spot to land Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks.

The Giants dealt two Day 3 picks in order to move from No. 25 to No. 24 - a fifth-round selection (No. 160) and a seventh-round pick (No. 240).

Heading into the second night of the draft, the Giants have seven picks remaining:

  • Round 2 - Pick No. 57
  • Round 3 - Pick No. 89
  • Round 4 - Pick No. 128
  • Round 5 - Pick No. 172
  • Round 6 - Pick No. 209
  • Round 7 - Pick No. 243
  • Round 7 - Pick No. 254

With two selections currently slated for Friday night, the Giants could go in a variety of directions.

Here are what NFL experts are predicting for the Giants on Day 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft.

View the best remaining players in Daniel Jeremiah's original top 150 prospect rankings.

Pick for No. 57: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

Pick for No. 89: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

Pick for No. 57: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

Analysis: "The Giants have a pressing need at center, and Schmitz, who is the second-best center on our board, is a potential steal this late in the draft."

Pick for No. 57: Joe Tippmann, C, Wisconsin

Analysis: "The Giants add much-needed help at center with a rock-solid player offering above-average size."

Pick for No. 57: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

Analysis: "Ojulari is the younger brother of Giants edge rusher and former second-rounder Azeez. He's a similarly undersized player with an array of pass-rushing moves at his disposal. He saw playing time ever since his freshman year and racked up 127 pressures in three seasons."

Pick for No. 89: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

Analysis: "Tillman is the most physical receiver in the draft class. He's a safe bet as a possession receiver, as he dropped only five of his 104 career catchable targets. His large catch radius is perfect for Daniel Jones."

Pick for No. 57: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

Analysis: "Downs brings sharp running and big-play explosiveness to the table."

Pick for No. 89: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon

Pick for No. 57: Rashee Rice, WR, SMU

Analysis: "Rice is a YAC weapon who'd add a new component to the Giants offense."

Pick for No. 89: Joe Tippmann, C, Wisconsin

Pick for No. 57: Steve Avila, OL, TCU

Analysis: "With Daniel Jones locked down long term, shoring up the interior offensive line is paramount for Brian Daboll and the New York Giants. Steve Avila was an all-Big 12 performer at both guard and center, and can play both spots effectively with his boxy 6'3 1/2", 332-pound frame. He has burst, but Avila wins with heavy hands and leverage."

Pick for No. 89: Zacch Pickens, DT, South Carolina

Analysis: "The Giants are motivated to keep their interior DL rotation strong, and Zacch Pickens has elite tools to mold in that lens. He's 6'4", 300 pounds, with 34 3/8" levers for arms. The former five-star recruit lit up the Combine, logging a 4.89 40-yard dash, 30.5" vertical, and 9'8" broad jump. Pickens' two-phase upside is near-unmatched in this class."

Pick for No. 57: Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss

Pick for No. 89: Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State

Pick for No. 57: Luke Wypler, C, Ohio State

Pick for No. 57: John Michael Schmitz, C, Minnesota

Pick for No. 57: Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

Pick for No. 89: Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon
