After being forced by the hand of God to pass on Nelson, Gettleman makes amends and selects the Isaiah Simmons of offensive linemen... Tristan Wirfs.
Don't joke around like that Wirfs should actually be rated behind Becton and Josh Jones. The show Wirfs put on at the spandex party don't mean a thing. His footwork is terrible. I still can't figure out why he is in the "fab four"
My Offensive line grades. All of these are 1st round picks:
1. Jedrick Wills
2. Andrew Thomas
3. Mekhi Becton
4. Josh Jones
5. Tristan Wirfs
Don't be shocked if Andrew Thomas' line mate at Georgia, Isaiah Wilson is picked in round 1.

Whether its at 4 or a little lower (but not out of the top 10) I take an OT. Wills or Thomas I guess make the most sense as Wirfs would be better at guard and Becton is more of a project. OT is just too great of a need. If they take Simmons I will be disappointed but not angry. The only pick in Round 1 that would cause me to be angry is WR. So I'm 100% sure Gettleman will pick a receiver at 4.
We know so little about how this is going to go down. Last year we knew pretty much it was QB. This time around we think it's Simmons or OT; but, with a trade down things could change drastically. The player evaluation by Judge, Garrett, Graham and, maybe in a big way, Columbo is going to drive this. We're not sure how they view what they have, so we really can't be sure how they feel about what they really need. Are Judge and Garrett guys who simply can't tolerate unforced fumbles by their QB? We just don't know. I think this is going to be the most interesting draft in a long time. All the virtual evaluation because of COVID is going to make it all the more unpredictable. I can't wait until Cincy gets on the clock. Unfortunatley the first pick usually takes almost half an hour, so the Giants probably won't pick until 9:00 or so.

AmaniToomerToeDrag: Wouldn't it be so 2020 for the Giants to not only make the playoffs, but to pull off the greatest playoff push in NFL history? Beat the Bills in the Super Bowl. One could dream. Speaking of Dream, what a stud that Daniel Jones is at QB. 😉Later Haters😉
