"Make the Case" is once again in session on Giants.com.
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 one of the top O-lineman and one of the best offensive playmakers in the 2021 draft.
Oregon OT Penei Sewell vs. Florida TE Kyle Pitts
Height/Weight: 6-foot-4 / 331 pounds
2019 stats: 14 games, allowed zero sacks, two quarterback hits and seven pressures (opted out of 2020 season)
Height/Weight: 6-foot-6 / 245 pounds
2020 stats: 8 games, 43 receptions for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns
Lance Zierlein, NFL Network: Kyle Pitts - "Dream scenario here, as the Giants get a chance to choose between electric speed (Jaylen Waddle) and matchup talent (Pitts). I see them taking the latter."
Anthony Treash, Pro Football Focus: Penei Sewell - "First things first, the chances of Sewell actually falling this far are slim. But this mock represents what I would do and not what the NFL would do, so a generational tackle falls right in the lap of New York here at Pick 11. Sewell recorded a 95.8 PFF grade in 2019, which still stands as the highest-graded season by a Power 5 tackle since 2014. At 6-foot-6, 325-pounds, it's quite amazing watching Sewell move in space — the overall athleticism is off the charts. He earned a 95.7 grade as a run-blocker in 2019 and was also nearly perfect in pass protection, allowing just seven pressures on 491 snaps."
Jordan Reid, The Draft Network: Kyle Pitts - "Mocking an athletic tight end early for the Giants will give many pause, but whether it's WR or TE, don't get caught up in the two letters in front of Pitts' name. He's an "all of the above" player that can satisfy the roles of both a wide receiver and tight end. A serviceable blocker and unique weapon in the passing game, he has the potential to quickly turn into one of the more dangerous players at the position during the early stages of his career."
