Make the Case: OL Tristan Wirfs vs. Mekhi Becton


"Make the Case" is back in session on

In this series, we look at projections provided by two analysts and then ask you, the fans, to weigh in on what the Giants should do with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Daniel Jeremiah (NFL Media) projected Iowa OL Tristan Wirfs: "Lots of good options here, but protecting QB Daniel Jones is the priority. … Wirfs is a big, powerful offensive tackle. In pass protection, he launches out of his stance and hasn't had issues versus outside speed rushers. However, he has experienced issues against inside counter moves. He over-sets and struggles to redirect back inside, allowing too many pressures in the games I studied. When he can land his punch, it's over. His hands are so strong and he has the power base to end the play right there. In the run game, he is very strong and aggressive. He creates a ton of movement, but also will overextend and fall off at times. He's on the ground too much. I love his aggressive demeanor, but he needs to play more under control. Overall, I believe he can survive at tackle, but he'd benefit from playing with neighbors on both sides. I think Wirfs has All-Pro potential at guard."

Michael Renner (Pro Football Focus) projected Louisville OT Mekhi Becton: "The Giants are committed to building through the trenches, and there's no larger building block in the draft class… literally. The 6-foot-7, 364-pound Becton scooted his way to a 5.1 second 40-yard dash (at the Combine). While he hasn't been tested a ton in pass protection (73 true pass sets all year) and is raw as a prospect, Becton has rare physical tools to work with."
