Giants Now: PFF names Dru Phillips best pick of Round 3


PFF names Dru Phillips best pick of Round 3

Trevor Sikkema, lead draft analyst for Pro Football Focus, recently named his favorite pick from each round in this year's class. He particularly liked what the Giants did on Day 2, when they selected Kentucky cornerback Dru Phillips in the third round, No. 70 overall.

"Every NFL team added players in the 2024 NFL Draft who they're happy with," Sikkema wrote, "but some teams stood out in their ability to secure phenomenal value or quality players with their picks."

Phillips, 5-11 and 190 pounds, declared for the draft after his junior season in 2023. He was a three-year letterman who played in 38 career games with 16 starts for the Wildcats and totaled 82 tackles along with 10 pass breakups and 3.0 tackles for loss.

"The Giants drafted Deonte Banks in the first round of last year's draft and now add more youth to that group early in the third round this year," Sikkema wrote. "His career-best 23 defensive stops led all SEC cornerbacks in 2023, and his 72.9 PFF coverage grade was also the best mark of his career."

The Giants entered Phase 2 of the offseason workout program at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
