Mock Draft Tracker 1.0: Experts predict Giants 2020 Draft Pick


The top of the draft order is set.

The New York Giants hold the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, which will take place April 23-25 in Las Vegas. The Bengals currently own the first overall selection, followed by the Redskins and Lions. The Dolphins pick directly after the Giants to round out the top five.

Next up on the draft calendar is the January 20 deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft. The Senior Bowl will be held January 25, and the NFL Scouting Combine takes place February 24-March 2 in Indianapolis. will track the latest mock drafts coming in from around the country. Here's what the draftniks currently project for the Giants at No. 4:

Pick: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama

Analysis: "Wills has been a rocketship up draft boards this season — and for good reason. Wills improved by leaps and bounds, even as the season went along. He allowed 11 pressures all season but only one in his last five games."

Pick: Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson

Analysis: "New York gets one of the best and most versatile defenders in the 2020 class at No. 4 overall. I love Simmons' potential and that he can play literally anywhere. He lines up at linebacker, in the slot, and at single-high safety. He displayed great range on an interception in the College Football Playoff semifinals that shows he's not a normal LB."

Pick: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Analysis: "The top of the 2020 NFL draft board is becoming clearer by the day, with top underclassmen declaring for April's selection process. Ohio State's Chase Young and Jeff Okudah and Alabama's Jerry Jeudy are among the potential top-10 prospects who have already stated their intentions. Projected No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow is a senior. As is Oregon's Justin Herbert, who might be the second quarterback off the board."

Pick: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

Analysis: "While most casual fans are familiar with Tagovailoa by now, several may not be as familiar with Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. This isn't the case for fans who watched him in the Vrbo Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day. Jeudy destroyed the Michigan defense, catching six passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. While this stat line may lead fans to believe that Jeudy is primarily a deep threat, his biggest asset may actually be his ability to generate separation with precision route-running. Even before Alabama's bowl game, Jeudy was trending as the top receiver in this draft class. He had little to gain by even playing in it, but his drive and determination should resonate with prospective NFL employers."

Pick: Jedrick Wills Jr., OL, Alabama

Analysis: "Wills is not only one of the best players on Alabama's roster, but he's also arguably the top offensive lineman in this class. The right tackle quietly had an outstanding 2019 campaign and he'll upgrade a Giants offensive line in desperate need of some consistency."

Pick: Andrew Thomas, OL, Georgia

Analysis: "The Giants would miss out on [Chase] Young by two picks, but landing Thomas wouldn't be considered a bad consolation prize whatsoever. He has franchise left tackle everything."

Pick: Andrew Thomas, OL, Georgia

Analysis: "The biggest change from mock drafts a week ago and mock drafts today is the Washington Redskins moving up to No. 2 overall ahead of the division rival New York Giants. Those two teams likely have their eyes set on the same player at that spot. Meanwhile, there are only three quarterbacks taken in the first round."

Pick: A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa

Analysis: "Epenesa (6-6, 280 pounds) is a powerful, explosive, big-bodied player. He can push blockers out of the way to get to the quarterback and also stands up strong against the run. He confirmed his top-10 status with 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble against USC in the Holiday Bowl."
