Peter Schrager's first mock draft has Giants beefing up o-line

The 2020 NFL Draft officially kicks off three weeks from today. By now, you have seen all of the players being connected to the Giants in mock drafts across many different websites. However, up until now, one prominent NFL analyst had been quiet on the upcoming draft front.

NFL Network's Peter Schrager released his first mock draft on Wednesday. As Schrager noted in the introduction, the process leading up to this year's draft is unlike anything the NFL has ever seen.

"I've had multiple coaches and general managers tell me just how different this year is," the NFL Network analyst wrote. "with hour-long interviews happening over Skype instead of in person, coaches living in different states and communicating over Zoom, and countless prospects who won't have the luxury of a pro day turning to Instagram to showcase their skills."

Nevertheless, the draft will go on as scheduled. Similar to other NFL analysts, Schrager predicts that the Giants will bolster their offensive line with the fourth overall pick in this year's draft with the selection of Alabama OT Jedrick Wills.

"Dave Gettleman's never traded his first selection in an NFL draft," wrote Schrager. "If things shake out the way they do here, he'll be able to pick any of the top four offensive linemen in this year's class. Joe Judge has a history with Alabama's Nick Saban, who has spoken positively of Wills to coaches around the league. Multiple coaches have told me Wills is the guy who goes first."

Colt McCoy can't wait to get to work with Daniel Jones

Giants quarterback Colt McCoy spoke with the New York media for the first time on Wednesday. Heading into his 11th season in the NFL, McCoy has had a ton of experience working with different quarterbacks. This season, he will serve as a backup to Daniel Jones, whom the veteran saw play twice in person last season as a member of the Washington Redskins.

"Being in the same division, you watch everybody's tape because you're playing the same opponents all year long," McCoy said. "I think for being a rookie, Daniel played great. I enjoyed watching him from afar. Daniel is super talented. I think there's a big jump to be made, but his future is so bright."

McCoy added: "Daniel and I have had several conversations. I think most importantly, it's just 'Man, I know you had Eli (Manning) in there and you understand the value of a great quarterback room. I don't want that to change. I've got your back. I'm fully supportive of you. I want to just come in, help you grow, help you learn and help us as a team figure out how we can go out and win each week.' I think it's going to be real exciting."
