Nah, how about a pass receiver?EDTShareTweetShareShareDan’s 7-round Giants mock: Taking a different approachBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWith now single days until the 2019 NFL Draft, there is still a question of what the New York Giants will do in the first round. With 12 picks total, there are questions surrounding what the entire weekend will entail, but specific questions still surround the sixth and 17th overall picks. It appears the Giants aren’t going to target a quarterback at No. 6 and if that’s the case, I personally don’t think it makes much sense to go for one at 17 — especially if that quarterback is Daniel Jones, who does not project favorably as a first-round pick.that personnel grouping. Then add the value of Hockenson and Engram as the pass catchers on the field.- Offense is more important than defense: Welcome to the NFL in 2019. Offense just matters more. Of the final eight teams in the playoffs last season, five of them were in the top-5 of offensive DVOA. None of them were in the top-5 of defensive DVOA. There has to be some level of competency on defense — and we’ll get to that — but a stud player on offense is going to matter more than one on the other side of the ball.Round 1, No. 17 — Greedy Williams, CB, LSUOf course, the Giants can’t run out the current defensive depth chart they currently have — improvements are needed. EDGE is the biggest hole on the roster, but one way to make the job of a pass rusher easier is to have a good secondary behind it. A stud pass rusher is great, but that doesn’t matter if a receiver is running wide open for the quarterback to hit quickly. A stud corner, though, could lock down that receiver and give a pass rusher more time to get to the quarterback. A top corner will also play more defensive snaps than a top pass rusher. We discussed this theory a little at the end of the season with the Giants — they had an above average pressure rate on defense, but the problem wasn’t the lack of creating sacks, it was that the secondary couldn’t hold up long enough for the pressure to matter. With the secondary as currently constructed, that would likely be the case again regardless of who was rushing the passer. Enter Greedy Williams. Williams measured in just under 6’2” at the combine and ran a 4.37 40. Both are ideal measurements to put outside across from Janoris Jenkins. That would also allow Grant Haley to play the slot and not thrust Sam Beal into a major starting role from the outset. Per Sports Info Solutions, Williams played 62.7 percent of his coverage snaps in man last season and allowed just 33.8 percent of targets to be completed against him. The biggest “concern” for him is his tackling, which feels like a nitpick for a corner who only allowed a third of passes thrown his way to be caught. Round 2, No. 37 — Chase Winovich, EDGE, MichiganRound 3, No. 95 — Oshane Ximines, EDGE, Old DominionWe’ll put these two together Sterling Shepard Jerseys 2019 , for obvious reasons. Instead of taking a swing on a top-tier pass rusher earlier in the draft, we can double up in the second and third round. By average expected Approximate Value, using picks 37 and 95 (17.2 AV over five seasons) would be a little less than expected for using the sixth overall pick (23.2) but more than using the 17th overall pick (16.6) on EDGE. But in the best case scenario, where you get two productive pass rushers instead of one, that’s a bigger impact for the defense.Winovich gets a rap as a “high motor” player, but he also has the athleticism to make that type of drive matter. His 115.4 Speed Score (weight-adjusted 40-time) was the fifth-best for this edge class at the Combine. He only had five sacks in 2018, but was consistently in the backfield with 17 tackles for loss and 25 run stuffs. His 11.8 percent pressure rate could have been better, but his athleticism and technique make that an OK bet early in the second round.Ximines is a small school prospect out of Old Dominion, but has enough production to translate even while his Combine testing left a little to be desired. He was 10th among this edge class in pressure rate with 17.5 tackles for loss, 12 sacks, and 24.5 run stuffs, which was third to only Winovich and Sutton Smith in this group of edge rushers. He also came out favorably in Football Outsiders’ SackSEER projections, which has him as the seventh best pass rusher in this class, with a better statistical profile than Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell.Round 4, No. 108 — Max Scharping, OT, Northern IllinoisTackle is another position where ideally it would get addressed earlier, but in this mock, it works out just fine. This is a position that needs an upgrade for the Giants, but luckily the bar at right tackle is pretty low and the value of going from there to average is better than average to elite, per a Pro Football Focus study.Scharping brings value on both sides of the line. He started most of his games at left tackle but has experience on the right side. Per Sports Info Solutions, he was an above average pass blocker at tackle with a blown block rate of 1.36 percent and he is one of the best run blocking tackles in this class with a blown block rate of just 0.72 percent. Scharping didn’t do a full workout at the combine, but he came out above average in every test he participated. This is a potential starter in the fourth round. At worst, he’s a high-level swing tackle.Round 4, No. 132 — Gary Jennings, WR, West VirginiaJennings is one of my favorite under the radar wide receivers in this class. He didn’t get the hype of David Sills for the Mountaineers, but Jennings was the more productive receiver. By Target Yards Added, West Virginia averaged 3.32 more yards when Jennings was targeted than when a pass was thrown to anyone else on the roster. That number was negative — minus-1.76 — for David Sills. Only three players in the draft class came in above average in Target Yards Added White Darian Thompson Jerseys , Positive Play Percentage against man coverage, and Positive Play Percentage against zone coverage (per SIS) — Emanuel Hall, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and Jennings.Round 5, No. 142 — Michael Dogbe, iDL, TempleDogbe is an athletic, disruptive presence on the interior of the defensive line. Last year for Temple, Dogbe had seven sacks and 20.5 run stuffs. That run stuff number was only behind Quinnen Williams and Gerald Willis in this interior class. He’d be a perfect rotational piece to go along with B.J. Hill and Dalvin Tomlinson. Round 5, No. 143 — Te’Von Coney, LB, Notre DameWe don’t have an athletic profile for Coney because he didn’t test at the Combine, but he’s done two things really well over his career at Notre Dame: cover and not miss tackles. This late in the draft and in this linebacker class, that’s better than you could ask. Coney was a tackling machine last season with 125 combined tackles — 60 solo with just two broken tackles per SIS. On 19 passes, he allowed just 3.3 yards per target and he allowed just 4.4 yards per target over 35 career passes thrown his way. Round 5, No. 171 — Sheldrick Redwine, S, MiamiRedwine is an excellent athlete — 89th SPARQ percentile among safeties — and has experience at both safety positions. He mostly lined up as the single-high safety for the Hurricanes last season, but also spent 20.5 percent of his snaps in the slot, per SIS. He also blitzed on 6.3 percent of his snaps. He’d be an immediate special teams contributor and would be useful No. 3/4 safety who could be moved around the field.Round 6, No. 180 — Oli Udoh, OL, ElonDepth and versatility are key for these late picks. Udoh tested as an above average athlete at the combine — 60th percentile per SPARQ — and comes with the versatility to play both tackle and guard. He started most of his games at right tackle for Elon, but played some guard his freshman year and took reps there during the Shrine Game practices, where he embraced the move.Round 7, No. 232 — Jordan Brailford, EDGE, Oklahoma StateBrailford comes with an injury risk — it’s why a 78th percentile athlete coming off a 10-sack season is available in the seventh round — but because it is the seventh round it’s well worth the risk. Although he has played 13 games in each of the past two seasons. He also brings some versatility with snaps at off-ball linebacker this past season for Oklahoma State. Brailford is not yet a polished pass rusher, but with some development could turn into a useful rotation piece.Round 5 Darian Thompson Jerseys 2019 , No. 245 —Tony Pollard, RB, MemphisPollard represents the two things the Giants don’t need on this roster — a running back and slot receiver — but if the Giants are going to add to the running back rotation, might as well get a player who also excels in the passing game. With 7.1 yards per carry last season and 58.6 percent of his snaps coming in the slot for Memphis, he’s basically a more athletic version — Pollard ran a 4.31 40 — of Jaylen Samuels, who was drafted in the fifth round and saw success last year with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pollard is also a dangerous kick returner with seven career kick return touchdowns over the past three seasons.Giants news, 8/28: Injuries mean Giants need Lorenzo Carter to step up Good morning, New York Giants fans! In case you somehow missed it, something significant happened on Monday. Let’s get to your Tuesday morning headlines, see what else is going on and check some of the reaction to Odell Beckham Jr.’s record-setting contract.Lorenzo Carter asked to take on bigger roleWith Olivier Vernon sidelined by an ankle injury and Connor Barwin working his way back from a knee injury, the Giants will need third-round pick Lorenzo Carter to take on more responsibility. Carter tried on Monday to downplay taking first-team reps on defense.“It’s just a chance to get out there and get better. Just to test yourself against the starters to see what it’s like,” he said. “It’s still football at the end of the day. You still go out there reading your keys and striking blockers. Just have to go out there and make the most of it.“The “ones” are a little bit more refined. They know their job, they’ve done their job for a couple of years. So, they have that on top of the “two’s” and “three’s” a little bit. The two’s and three’s, we’re all out there flying around, getting better, working hard.”Janoris Jenkins likes Pat Shurmur’s styleMuch has been made of coach Pat Shurmur’s efforts to build relationships with players. Jenkins on Monday provided an example by talking about how Shurmur eats lunch with a group of players nearly every day, something coaches don’t always do.“He eats in there a lot with us. He’ll come by, sit with us and talk it up. He asks us what we think about the defense, I like that,” Jenkins said. “It’s rare, but its cool because you earn the trust of the guys on the team. It lets you know that your head coach is not scared to come up and talk to you as a person or as a man. Communication is key, as we all know.”Around the Inter-GoogleNow it's on Odell Beckham Jr. to behave like a player worthy of that $95 million contract | Politi | NJ.comThe Giants made him the richest wide receiver in every possible way this week.
