The bad news is that they need help, and a “ifs” to break their way, at the most important position on the defense -- pass rusher. But the good news is that the 2019 NFL Draft happens to be a phenomenal one for pass rushers.The Giants hold both the sixth and seventeenth picks in the first round, which gives them options and flexibility in how they approach their draft. It is entirely possible -- perhaps even likely -- that an elite prospect will fall to the Giants at at sixth overall. However, they might opt to address another position there, such as quarterback. If they do, they could look to their second first round pick to try and fill the hole at pass rusher. About best case scenario the Giants could hope for would be for Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell to fall to them there. MeasurablesProsGreat length and size for an NFL EDGE. Very good hand usage. Uses his length to create space. Good first step.Shows a variety of pass rush moves. Usually approaches his rushes with a plan.Strong awareness of the play. Stout in the run game. Consistently productive.ConsDoesn’t appear comfortable in space. Lateral agility is only average.Suffered an ACL tear in 2014.Prospect VideoWhat They’re Saying - Jon Ledyard (The Draft Network - Scouting Report)Does He Fit The Giants?Whether or not Ferrell fits with the Giants’ defense is a bit of a loaded question and depends more on what the Giants want from their EDGE defenders. If they want them going downhill on nearly every rush, then the 6-foot-4 3/8, 264-pound Ferrell should be able to transition to the position well enough. There are enough similarities between a 4-3 defense and a 1-gap 3-4 front that his position would basically be the same in both alignments. If the Giants want a player who can help drop into coverage and assist in disguising blitzes Wayne Gallman Jerseys Stitched , they might want to look elsewhere. As a prospect, independent of scheme, it is difficult to find much wrong in Ferrell’s game. He has a good first step and is one of the most polished pass rushers -- defenders -- in the entire draft when it comes to using his technique. Ferrell seems to approach every rep with a plan of how to attack the offense, and generally executes that plan well. He has fantastic hand usage, constantly battling for leverage and to keep offensive linemen from even being able to think about locking in on him, then uses his length well to extend, create space, and finish his rush. Ferrell might not have the athletic upside of some of the other pass rushers in this class, but he has matches that with a high floor thanks to solid athleticism and his polished technique. Ferrell might have been one of the first defenders off the board in many drafts, but the depth of talent at the position this year likely means that while Ferrell might become a solid value in the middle of the first round. ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Todd McShay take turns making picks in their new 3-round draft"The wait for the 2019 NFL Draft is almost up, with just seven more sleeps until draft day, and then a few hours (depending on when you wake up) until the New York Giants are on the clock for the first time.Unfortunately we still have a week’s worth of time to fill between now and then. Actual news regarding the draft is Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys , and will be, slowing down as team visits wrap up and front office bigwigs cloister themselves to define their team’s strategy. Mock drafts are being produced at a furious rate to fill time, try to analyze team needs and which prospects might fill those nees. They also try and predict the draft with some degree of accuracy (they’ll fail because the draft gets squirrelly fast, but getting even a couple picks correct scores bragging points). The big problem is that after nearly five months, mock drafts are boring, old, and stale. Draft analysts need to find ways to spice them up and come up with something fresh for their readers, and their own sanity. ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have both released a few generations of mock drafts already this year. This time they are doing a “rotating” three-round mock where they trade off picks. Let’s see which analyst selected what prospects for the Giants.6. New York Giants17. New York Giants (from CLE)37. New York Giants95. New York Giants (from NE via CLE)Raptor’s ThoughtsI am still of the belief that if the Giants believe that Dwayne Haskins can be a franchise quarterback, or even a good starter, he should be the pick if available. The Giants don’t have an answer for quarterback after the 2019 season, and perhaps even FOR the 2019 season if Eli Manning regresses without Odell Beckham Jr. The team has the opportunity and can’t leave the future of their franchise up to chance. Haskins fits Pat Shurmur’s offense well with good accuracy and placement, a strong arm Dalvin Tomlinson Jerseys Stitched , a quick release, and even quicker mental processing. He isn’t the most mobile quarterback, but he can move well enough to execute play-action passes, rollouts, and bootleg plays. Jonah Williams isn’t the defensive player the Giants need, but he should help finish off the offensive line. He is an excellent technician and has experience at both left and right tackle — an added bonus if the team looks to move on from Nate Solder after this season. I am not a fan of L.J. Collier at this point in the draft. He was productive last year, but he is a limited athlete and as athleticism is of vital importance for success as an NFL pass rusher. There will likely be better prospects available at the top of the second round at either EDGE or interior defensive line (5-technique or 3-technique).Finally, I have to admit that I haven’t watched Corey Ballentine and don’t know much about the FCS corner. Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network profiled him and concluded that he is a fifth-round value and likely special teams contributor who could grow into more, saying:Usually teams get into the fifth or sixth rounds before I have no clue who some of the prospects are, so this is definitely a bit early. So Giants fans, how would you feel about this draft?
