Make the Case: Secondary or pass rush at No. 25?


"Make the Case" has once again returned on

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.

Next up is a debate between the selections from CBS Sports' Will Brinson and Pro Football Focus' Sam Monson and Steve Palazzolo.

Pick: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Height: 6-2 | Weight: 193

2022 stats: 10 games, 27 tackles (21 solo), 11 passes defensed, one fumble recovery

Accolades: First-Team All-Big Ten (2022), 2x Third-Team All-Big Ten (2020, 2021)

"The Giants focused on the trenches last year in the draft and getting Daniel Jones a weapon here would work fine as well, but instead they add some more talent on the back end."

Pick: Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

Height: 6-2 | Weight: 238

2022 stats: 8 games, 18 tackles (14 solo), three sacks, seven tackles for loss, one pass defensed

Accolades: 2x CFP National Champion (2021, 2022)

"Smith is unique in so many ways with a lot of projectable NFL traits. He'll likely be a more productive pass-rusher in the NFL than he was at Georgia."
