NYG22_MakeTheCase_1920x1080 (2)

"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 two of ESPN's top draft analysts, Mel Kiper and Jordan Reid, for what the Giants should do with their second-round selection at No. 36.

Pick for No. 36: Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor

Height: 6-0 | Weight: 197

2021 stats: 14 games, 76 total tackles (57 solo), two interceptions, nine pass breakups, two forced fumbles, 0.5 sacks, 3.5 tackles for loss, 98.6 overall PFF grade, 78.7 coverage grade, 92.7 run defense grade

"This makes five safeties off the board in the top 36 picks. Pitre was stellar against the run last season; he had 20 run stops, according to ESPN Stats & Info, which were the most by any FBS defensive back. He impressed teams at the Senior Bowl. The Giants could target a wide receiver here, depending on how the board falls. The 6-foot-3 George Pickens (Georgia) could make sense."

Pick for No. 36: Quay Walker, LB, Georgia

Height: 6-4 | Weight: 240

2021 stats: 15 games, 67 total tackles (39 solo), 1.5 sacks, 5.5 tackles for loss, one fumble recovery, three pass breakups; 72.1 overall PFF grade, 69.8 pass rush grade, 71.5 run defense grade, 70.6 coverage grade

"In need of more speed on the second level, Walker brings a long, rangy and physical presence that is only scratching the surface of his potential. He was only a one-year starter at Georgia."
