Mock Draft Tracker: Final picks for Giants

The Giants, barring another deal, are on track to select two players in the first round for the first time since 1984.

The team currently holds 12 total selections, including the sixth and 17th overall choices, as the first round is set to kick off at 8 p.m. ET in Nashville.

Below is a look at the final mock drafts coming in from around the country:

No. 6: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston – "No quarterback here, but Oliver would fill a need for the Giants. He could play end in a 3-4 defense."

No. 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "Could Jones fall into GM Dave Gettleman's lap? I like Jones' potential, but he should sit and learn for a year behind Eli Manning."

No. 6: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky – "The Giants need a pass rusher and a quarterback. I'm hearing they'll look to get a pass rusher first, and they land one of the best available this year in Allen."

No. 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "I can't rule out Drew Lock here, but Jones has long been associated with the Giants. They get their QB."

No. 6: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky – "Allen, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year who had 17 sacks last season, fits everything GM Dave Gettleman loves in a football player. He's a leader. He's a senior boasting a resume checkered with accomplishments. And he's a terror off the edge. He's also a heck of a kid. The Giants may sniff around on the quarterbacks here, but I see them going "best player available" -- as they've indicated they will do, time and time again."

No. 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "All that talk about the Giants loving the Duke QB? I hear there's more than just smoke there -- it's true. Peyton Manning is one of Jones' biggest advocates, and at No. 17 overall -- not six -- this might just be too much for New York to pass on."

No. 6: Devin White, ILB, LSU – "This defensive unit needs just about everything. And in addition to his great speed, range and instincts, White can be the leader of New York's rebuilding defense for years to come."

No. 17: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri – "At last, the Giants get a quarterback. Lock brings a big arm, mobility and the ability to make difficult off-balance throws with ease. Under Eli Manning's tutelage, Lock and White spark some excitement in the Giants' rebuild."

No. 6: Rashan Gary, EDGE, Michigan – "Yes, this could be a quarterback, but my vibe says no. The Giants need help on both the offensive and defensive lines, and they start by adding a strong edge rusher who's a Jersey kid in Gary, despite any concerns about the shoulder injury he's been dealing with dating back to his college career."

No. 17: Jonah Williams, OG, Alabama – "Williams was a skilled left tackle in college and he can stay in that spot in the NFL. I like him better inside at guard, but wherever he plays, he'll start from Day 1."

Albert Breer: Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky/Daniel Jones, QB, Duke

Jenny Vrentas: Rashan Gary, EDGE, Michigan/Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State

Conor Orr: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State/Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson

Robert Klemko: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State/Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan

Kalyn Kahler: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State/ D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss

No. 6: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State – "He is one of the most accurate short and intermediate passers in the draft and strong when playing from a clean pocket (a stable indicator of future success). However, Haskins was far more inconsistent when passing down the field or while under pressure. It's a necessary move for the Giants to find their QB of the future."

No. 17: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss – "Brown is a good fit here, as the Giants look to add a high-volume receiver to the mix to replace Odell Beckham, Jr. His skillset is a perfect match with Haskins, as Brown can win at the short and intermediate level, both outside and in the slot. He averaged 7.6 yards after the catch per reception during his Ole Miss career while dropping only 13 passes on 201 catchable targets."

No. 6: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama – "Let's have some fun, shall we? Perhaps the Giants believe the offensive lineman they covet will be gone by 17, so they turn in the card at 6. We know GM Dave Gettleman loves the hog mollies. We know he believes Eli Manning can still play. If the Giants truly want to support their 38-year-old quarterback, then keeping him upright should be where it starts. Positional versatility gives Williams the edge over the rest of the OL class."

No. 17: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson – "The Giants get an edge rusher with their second pick of the first round. Ferrell has experience getting to the QB at the highest level and in the biggest spots."

No. 6: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston – "He played over the center in college but he'll be a 3-technique terror in the NFL where he'll spend Sunday afternoons wreaking havoc in the backfield. Would the Giants take a quarterback here? Maybe. But general manager Dave Gettleman is all about bolstering both lines and Oliver is one of the best players in this class."

No. 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "Jones played for David Cutcliffe at Duke and this is noteworthy because Cutcliffe is close with Peyton and Eli Manning. And when you watch Jones play, he looks a lot like a Manning -- his mannerisms, his footwork, they way he holds the football. Added bonus: He's a surprisingly good athlete who can run an RPO-heavy offense and rushed for 186 yards against North Carolina last season. And like Eli 15 years ago, Jones can begin his career on the bench."

No. 6: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "As the heir apparent to Eli Manning, Jones is a good fit in a Pat Shurmur-led offensive because of his proficiency in the quick game and strong pre-snap ability. Jones is much untested completing post-snap reads and attacking deep, and lacks ideal physical traits, so the ceiling is a bit lower for him than it is for the rest of the class. But if you think he's your QB, you gotta go get him."

No. 17: Rashan Gary, EDGE, Michigan – "Gary's a really fun fit in James Bettcher's multiple, attacking defense -- he'll move around on the defensive line a ton, and win on stunts and twists. That's a great deployment for him, as is the outside run responsibilities he'll get playing next to Dalvin Tomlinson and B.J. Hill. Great fit, if the player is healthy."

No. 6: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston – "General manager Dave Gettleman believes in high upside traits and Oliver certainly qualifies. He might not be an ideal fit, but defensive coordinator James Bettcher mixes up his personnel and will put Oliver in position to succeed."

No. 13 (projected trade up): Daniel Jones, QB, Duke – "The Giants don't go quarterback at No. 6, but they don't risk their quarterback lasting until No. 17 and move up three spots to guarantee they get their guy. The connections between Jones and the Giants have been well-documented, giving New York its long-term answer at quarterback."
