What prospects might the Giants take on Day 2?

DRAFT-TOMMY

The Giants earned high grades on the first day of the 2022 NFL Draft.

With the fifth overall pick, the Giants selected Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux. They then addressed the offensive line at No. 7, taking Alabama tackle Evan Neal.

Heading into Day 2, the Giants currently hold the following three selections in Rounds 2-3:

  • No. 36 (Round 2)
  • No. 67 (Round 3)
  • No. 81 (Round 3)

So, which prospects might they target tonight? Experts weigh in.

Pick for No. 36: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

Analysis: "The Giants added a pair of cornerstone players in the first round and could add a third with Dean."

Pick for No. 67: Dylan Parham, IOL, Memphis

Pick for No. 81: Joshua Williams, CB, Fayetteville State

Pick for No. 36: Andrew Booth, CB, Clemson

Analysis: "Booth's recent core muscle surgery might have scared some teams off, but his talent could be too much to pass up on for the Giants in Round 2."

Pick for No. 67: Christian Harris, LB, Alabama

Pick for No. 81: Zamir White, RB, Georgia

Pick for No. 36: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State

Analysis: "This pick would give them more options as Watson has the potential to develop into a No. 1 receiver."

Pick for No. 36: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Analysis: "Booth is a twitched-up ball hawk when healthy."

Pick for No. 67: Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia

Pick for No. 81: Troy Anderson, LB, Montana State

Pick for No. 36: Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

Analysis: "Gordon is a fluid mover with outstanding short-area quickness and excellent ball skills."

Pick for No. 67: John Metchie III, WR, Alabama

Pick for No. 81: Dylan Parham, IOL, Memphis

Pick for No. 36: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

Analysis: "Dean is a rangy playmaker who does everything well required of the position, including fly over the field and inspire with his leadership."

Pick for No. 67: Cade Otton, TE, Washington

Analysis: "Otton can provide a dynamic, athletic pass-catcher for Daniel Jones while he rounds out his blocking."

Pick for No. 81: Sam Williams, EDGE, Mississippi

Analysis: "The Giants revved up their pass rush early with Thibodeaux but could also use some situational pop. Williams has a wide array of quick moves and does a little bit of everything well."

Pick for No. 36: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State

Analysis: "The NYG have to be thrilled with Kayvon Thibodeaux and Evan Neal with their first two selections and now will look to add an outside receiving threat who ran a 4.36s 40-yard dash and posted a phenomenal 9.96 RAS. Watson also lit up the Senior Bowl practices, proving he can handle the jump in competition. With receivers flying off the board in the middle of the first round, Watson is a solid value here."

Pick for No. 67: Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA

Pick for No. 81: Brian Cook, S, Cincinnati

Pick for No. 36: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Analysis: "Booth is fast, fluid, full of energy, and an insane disruptor at the catch point."

Pick for No. 67: Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State

Pick for No. 81: Nick Cross, S, Maryland

Giants' ideal target on Day 2: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

Analysis: "Size and medical concerns pushed Dean down boards and out of the first round, but it's difficult to see him lasting too long on Day 2. He plays as fast as any linebacker in this class, thanks in large part to his ability to recognize and react to plays. Dean is coming off a career-high 91.8 PFF grade in 2021 as the central piece of a dominant Georgia defense. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Evan Neal and Dean would represent an impressive haul for the Giants."

Pick for No. 36: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

Pick for No. 67: Troy Anderson, LB, Montana State

Pick for No. 81: Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Ohio State
