4. Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
There’s one glaring quality about Missouri Tigers quarterback Drew Lock that stands out — he’s a fighter. Georgia was his biggest test so far in the 2018 college football season. And while he wasn’t good, he did his best to keep his team in the game. Ultimately the Bulldogs were just too much for Lock and Tigers.
He’ll have more games to show what he can do, but even with the UGA loss there’s Lock is a quarterback worth drafting in the first round.

To begin with, his size and athleticism are a necessity in today’s NFL, especially where the Giants and their OL are concerned. He’s not a running quarterback, but does a great job on RPOs. He stands in the pocket and delivers a great pass. Thanks to a rocket arm, there isn’t a throw he can’t make.
He also does a solid job sensing pressure and moving around the pocket. Lock would work well for the Giants as a prospect they can sit. With his skill-set and the weapons on the Giants, he can have an explosive debut in Year 2 or 3.
3. Trey Adams, OT, Washington
The New York Giants will go into another offseason looking to improve their offensive line. Unless there’s miracle, they’ll need to dramatically improve the right side of the line. Washington’s Trey Adams is 6-8, 316 pounds with enough quickness and agility to become a great pass protector. Unfortunately, we won’t see more of him in 2018 as he’s out for the rest of the year due to injury.
Jon Dove of With the First Pick did a great job breaking down Adams’ game. While he has pass protection potential on tape, he excelled as run blocker. He’s mauler and does a great job using hist power to twist his man and open lanes. Moreover, Adams is great at combo blocks — he’s quick and keeps his head up. This allows him o get to the second level and open up running lanes.
