This is a post from David Syvertsen (Sy'56) on BBI. This is a good rundown of what's on the table and what the Giants might do today.
The busiest (albeit least popular) day of the draft is here. 4 Rounds and 149 picks on the way, 7 of which belong to NYG (4 in the 7th round). This is the point of the draft where teams will start shifting toward a true "best player available" approach, maybe once the 5th/6th round gets underway. With NYG having addressed the OT position two times already, I think they are going to lean toward adding athleticism and pass rush on defense in addition to a playmaker on offense.
-Early on in round 4, NYG could go in any direction really. Lets start with the OL. Centers Tyler Biadasz from Wisconsin and Nick Harris from Washington are there. Both have fallen to this point of the draft for their own respective reasons (one with injury history and the other with size concerns) and I would assume nobody views them as a 2020 starter. Does NYG need to use a 4th rounder (and third out of four picks) on the OL? I wouldn't say yes, but it would be an interesting approach to stock the position group and simply hope you hit on at least 2 or three guys in this class and not have to worry about for the rest of the Daniel Jones rookie contract. Another name I can see them liking is Darryl Williams from Mississippi State, a former guard that brings some interior versatility. Known for his smarts, he looked really solid down at Shrine week. he is a guy that could be there round 5/6 area. Elsewhere on the OL, the name that is sticking out to me is Saahdiq Charles from LSU. He played left tackle there but I think he projects inside where he can be an explosive guard. Shoulder and off field issues have bumped him down but as I always say, to build a truly dominant OL you are gonna have to get lucky once or twice. This guy has 2nd round talent, no doubt.
-Last year, NYG struck gold value-wise when they took Darius Slayton in round 5. As I said leading up to the draft, early round 4 and maybe even early round 5 is where you can find WR talent that had day 2 talent. Because the depth of the class was so strong, one could grab a guy that CAN make a year 1 difference and offer future starter upside. What if NYG can find another Slayton-type...and then not have to worry about WR for the next few years? Economically why your QB is on a rookie deal, so much money can be left for spending on defensive free agents. Donovan Peoples-Jones from Michigan is the kind of explosive athlete that flashed throughout his career (like Slayton) but just didn't get enough looks (like Slayton) and suffered from up and down QB play (like Slayton). I look at my WR board and he is a guy that stands out. If they want a little more size and little less speed, Antonio Gandy-Golden from Liberty might be the target they pursue. Isaiah Coulter from Rhode Island is a more developmental type guy that could be there in round 5 or 6. Quez Watkins from Southern Miss is a pure burner that brings an interesting ceiling to work with. Raw but he flashes big time playmaking ability. NYG could use some more life on this offense and he is certainly a guy that can create.
-Lastly on offense, a position I think they can perhaps sit on and wait, but add a piece to is running back. As I said in the preview, both Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis are free agents next year. Instead of scrambling in 2021, why not see if you can bring in a RB that offers something to this year's team but also shows developmental traits. The best would be Anthony McFarland from Maryland, although there are whispers surrounding maturity. I'm not sure he is an option in round 4 but his big play ability and speed would be a nice addition to Barkley once round 5 hits. DeeJay Dallas from Miami is an able and willing blocker and physical downhill runner that can perhaps take some of the physical load off Barkley in short yardage (a role he has not been good in).
-We came in to the draft saying this team needed to add defensive talent. As Eric says and it is so true, "bad teams have a lot of needs". By no means did NYG make any mistakes days 1 and 2 of the draft...there were more holes in the bucket than patches to seal. But they have an opportunity here to fill the depth chart with guys that can offer some speed and athletic ability to a defense that lacks both. There are spots open on all levels of the defense, and I think the EDGE spot needs to be addressed. Fackrell is on a one year deal and the Carter/Ximines duo is still a hope, not a reliant part.
-I don't see a guy worth going for in round 4, but once round 5 hits someone like Alton Robinson is interesting. Maybe too much of a true 4-3 DE though, and I think the either want a guy that can convert to OLB or 3-4 DE when they want to alter the front. That in mind, Trevis Gibson from Tulsa and Azur Kamara from Kansas are interesting guys if they want more OLB type. Carter Coughlin from Minnesota is a versatile piece that I have even discussed moving to ILB in certain packages, I think he can do it. There is some natural ability there to drop back in to coverage. Jason Stowbridge from North Carolina and James Lynch from Baylor aren't explosive edge guys, but I'm not sure that is what the scheme is hungry for right now. They are both physical down to down guys that can move in and out. They might be nice fits.
-I think they need more speed at ILB. Not necessarily guys that are going to start or even be in line to replace Connelly/Martinez. But what happens if they go down. Mayo is there and he is fine, but how about more speed for coverage/spy QB/shadow backs? Akeem Davis-Gaither from Appalachian State is undersized (224 pounds) but he is physical run a chase guy. If NYG sees the big boys they have along the DL, smaller/faster guys can fit at LB. Also could look at Troy Dye from Oregon. A tough and hard nosed kid that covers well. If they want to wait a little longer and add another physical thumper type (which is what I think they will do), I see Shaquille Quarterman from Miami being a guy they can target in round 6 or Evan Weaver from California in round 6/7. Problem with them, they aren't that "multiple" but again, neither are Connelly and Martinez and I think this staff wants physical guys inside.
-The Giants seem to be happy with what they have at CB, which is fine. I think they can use one of these picks on a corner though to hedge the possibility of Ballentine / Beal not working out. I think the nickel role will belong to Love, but I wouldn't mind getting someone like Troy Pride from Notre Dame is a tad undersized but I loved him at Senior Bowl, I think he has Day 2 talent. If you are looking at BPA approach, I think he is a guy you take and assume he is going to help soon. Bryce Hall from Virginia has the height and length you like, was very productive, but he is coming off an injury. I'll say this though, that dude has a ceiling. CB is a REALLY expensive position to build through free agency and if he can be a guy 2 years from now, major win economically. Later round options are nickels like Javaris Davis from Auburn who has blazing speed and good length albeit on a short frame, Darnay Holmes from UCLA who is really feisty, and Trajan Bandy from Miami who plays bigger and tougher than listed. If NYG wants a late round corner to build like what they did with Ballentine last year, Thakarius Keyes from Tulane and Lamar Jackson from Nebraska are tall, long, and fast.
Not that it means anything, but here is what I think NYG does today:

The Bengals took a linebacker -- Wyoming's Logan Wilson -- atop the third round. Don't be surprised if they double up here. I'm told App State LB Akeem Davis-Gaither is being discussed as the pick at 107. He carries great value for Cincy there, even with some injury concern.-Albert Breer

alohar2: Does anyone know the exact nature of Rudolph's foot injury? I don't recall DG/JJ describing the injury. We recall Strahan had a lis franc- tough recovery. Rudolph offers the Giants the most complete TE since Shockey. Iowa State has several terrific TEs.
