Giants Now: PFF's latest three-round mock draft


PFF's latest three-round mock draft

While the focus this week is revolving around free agency, we are inching closer and closer to the start of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Experts have been weighing in with their predictions for next month's draft since the conclusion of the 2022 season.

In Pro Football Focus' latest three-round mock draft, analyst Trevor Sikkema predicted the Giants would add an explosive offensive playmaker with their first pick.

Pick for No. 25: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "Though the Giants would probably like to get a bigger-bodied wide receiver, what they really need is just more playmaking ability from the position. Flowers, while small in size, brings that electric playstyle as an outside receiver and slot player." -- Sikkema

Flowers exploded in his senior season at Boston College last year. He set a new school record with 12 receiving touchdowns, while tying the record for receptions in a season (78) and finishing third on the school's all-time single-season list with 1,077 receiving yards. He was selected to the All-ACC First-Team (for the second time) in addition to being named a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, an honor given to the nation's top receiver.

By the time Flowers finished his collegiate career, he was Boston College's all-time leader in receptions (200), receiving yards (3,056) and receiving touchdowns (29).

Pick for No. 57: Daiyan Henley, LB, Washington State

Henley had a rare six-year collegiate career, with the first five at Nevada and the final one at Washington State. During the 2021 campaign, he earned Second-Team All-Mountain West honors after registering 94 total tackles (59 solo), four interceptions, three fumble recoveries and two defensive touchdowns.

Henley saved his best for his one season at Washington State. In 12 games last year, the 6-foot-2, 232-pound linebacker recorded 106 total tackles (54 solo), four sacks, 12 tackles for loss, one interception, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. HIs breakout performance led to him being named First-Team All-PAC-12. Additionally, he earned Second-Team All-PAC-12 honors as an all-purpose/special teams player.

Pick for No. 89: Jarrett Patterson, IOL, Notre Dame

After redshirting his freshman season in 2018, Patterson started the following four years at Notre Dame. From 2019-21, he served as the team's starting center for 34 games where he did not allow a single sack. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound lineman was named a Phil Steele All-American in both 2020 and 2021. He then transitioned to left guard for the 2022 campaign, where he started and played 12 of the final 13 games after he missed the season opener. Patterson was selected as a team captain in each of his final two seasons at Notre Dame.
